St. Lucia: Saint Lucia and Venezuela Both Victims of the Drug Trade says Official

A high-level Venezuelan delegation visited the island on Thursday, August 16, 2018 for National Security talks with the Prime Minister Honourable Allen Chastanet and National Security Minister Senator the Honourable Hermangild Francis.

The meetings were deemed to be very fruitful and have paved the way for further collaboration between Saint Lucia and Venezuela as both states will work closely to tackle the issues of the drug trade linked to the impact of other crimes such as the possession of illegal guns that plague both the Eastern Caribbean islands and the South America state.

Head of the visiting delegation and Vice Minister for Prevention and Citizen Security General Endes Jose Palencia Ortiz noted that both Saint Lucia and Venezuela are victims of the drug trade.
