PM Chastanet embraces Gaston Browne after LIAT issue

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet posted a photo embracing Antigua and Barbuda PM Gaston Browne to his Facebook page earlier today.

The caption reads: "Prime Minister of Antigua, Gaston Brown and I in Jamaica for the 39th Caricom Heads of Government Meetings.

Please don't believe the propaganda and hype about the two of us. We have been able to discuss the issues amicably in the interest of the peoples of the Caribbean.

One for all and all for one."

Browne had recently said that St Lucia signaled willingness to provide some financial subsidy to LIAT. The Government of St Lucia soon after issued a statement saying in part, "We have not yet made a decision on subsidising LIAT. What we have agreed to is a meeting to discuss some of the issues relevant to the airline."
