Saint Lucia urged an end to the conflict in Ukraine and expressed concern over escalating tensions in the Taiwan strait at the United Nations General Assembly.

Speaking on his country’s behalf, Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre told the session that the Ukraine war had unleashed death and horrendous destruction.

He noted that the conflict had plunged the world into an economic crisis, creating runaway inflation and food shortages and worsening a global supply chain crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Saint Lucia Prime Minister, the world could have been spared if countries and their leaders had respected and adhered to the principles of the charter of the United Nations.

He noted that the charter binds member countries to refrain from the threat or use of force and to settle disputes by peaceful means.

“We, therefore, call on all parties involved to immediately end the conflict in Ukraine by undertaking immediate negotiations to settle disputes in accordance with UN principles,” Pierre asserted.

In this regard, the PM observed that the billions of dollars spent in Ukraine in ‘wanton destruction and war’ could have transformed economies and lives in developing countries, had the money gone towards poverty reduction and economic transformation.

Pierre also said Saint Lucia lamented the recent escalation of tension in the Taiwan strait that threaten regional and international peace and security.

“Saint Lucia calls upon those responsible to observe the UN rules on peaceful settlement of disputes and respect for the territorial integrity and political independence of all countries,” he told his audience.

According to Pierre, the people of Taiwan freely determined their political status.

As a result, he said the Taiwanese people should be allowed to continue their chosen path to economic, social, and cultural development.

In addition, Pierre told the UN that Saint Lucia calls for the meaningful participation of Taiwan in the organs and agencies of the United Nations.

He also called for a reduction of tension and normalisation of relations with Venezuela and Cuba.

And Pierre urged the immediate removal of the ‘inhumane’ economic embargo against Cuba and the lifting of ‘painful sanctions’ against the people of Venezuela.

  1. Seen on FiveGunsWest…

    They may have lied to me about Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Grenada, Panama, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yugoslavia and those other places but this time [about Ukraine] they are telling the absolute Truth. – Jedadiah Fonbonski

  2. “The craven sycophancy demonstrated by Germany, France and the United Kingdom in their passionate embrace of America’s confrontation with Russia is now on life support. Despite continued bombastic threats to keep arming Ukraine until Russia collapses, economic reality is hitting the Europeans like an icy cold shower from a fire hose. Rapid inflation, particularly in the energy sector, is forcing factories and businesses to shutter operations. The de-industrialization of Europe, especially Germany and the UK, has started. German steel plants are closing, German bakeries are trying to figure out how to pay soaring utility bills while still making bread and pretzels and German toilet-paper manufacturer Hakle GmbH has applied for insolvency proceedings in self-administration. If you don’t have a bidet or a bucket full of sand, toilet paper is an essential item. The inflationary spiral may lead to the day where it is cheaper to wipe your ass with a 100 Euro note than three sheets of Hakle.”

  3. They are listening to you our great Prime minister . Tell them to stop fighting and eat more green figs and learn creole ….then Send a peace delegation led by Minister Poyette to UGLY them to death .

  4. Here’s how one Russian is taunting Europeans who have allowed their rulers to usher in gas rationing amid soaring gas bills, just to spite Russia with 8 rounds of economic sanctions (Note the open window). (Pip is but an amateur when it comes to clowning on the world stage)

    This effective trolling can be was found at vice [dot] com; and the article is titled:
    Russian Twitch Stream Burns Gas 24/7 to Troll the World. Then hit the link, “24/7 livestream”.

    Hello! Welcome to the Russian 24/7 wasting gas. Gas payment is ONLY 1.44€ per month (EC$3.84 per month). Note how many Russian rubles have been burnt so far (green bar at bottom right of the video).

  5. Pjp focus on lowering your unemployment rate. Stop the political game with our health care system and fix the effing roads l, seriously we have fish ponds on our roads, and my your country business and stay out of the war.. chops

  6. A world war was fought to cleanse society of the Nazi ideology. Why are western nations funding and fomenting this very same ideology millions died fighting against?

    • For everyone who has not shut down their senses against him, Highgrade has always revealed himself to be nothing but a tribal soldier and a house negro, sent among us to stir up s#it, in an effort to maintain the fake partisan political arena.

      His statement above, in support of Pip, is nothing more but a précis of his creed, which underpins his role as chief party fluffer:

      “Pip is a milquetoast PM; but he is my party’s milquetoast PM!”

  7. My advice – be careful what you say up there. I agree with your statement on Cuba and Venezuela, its been long over due. Its criminal what they are doing to Cuba, after all those years. What has her enemies got to gain by that? wait, there is a God above.

  8. “…also called for a reduction of tension and normalization of relations with Venezuela and Cuba”

    This afterthought by Pip, reported in this article, is a clear indication that he has his priorities grotesquely skewed!

    Why is he scared to call out the reasons & principals involved with the economic war against Cuba & Venezuela; a war which ultimately affects the viability of the entire Caribbean region?

    Why does he deem it necessary to parrot the talking points of the empire of lies, which makes him nothing but a duped proxy for their program to ultimately gain control of the natural resources of Russia, the industrial power of China, the oil of the Iran, and the enormous brain power of all three countries?

    • Perhaps Pip was taking a power nap while Lavrov spoke, before he himself was allowed at the UN lectern.

      If censorship of my previous post is implemented, you can view Lavrov’s speech to the UN by going to youtube [dot] com, and search for this video:
