Granger calls on Ramotar to apologise to US Ambassador

Opposition Leader David Granger this afternoon condemned the verbal attack yesterday by Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Priya Manickchand on the US Ambassador to Guyana, Brent Hardt and called on President Donald Ramotar to issue an apology to the envoy.

Granger’s statement follows:

The Leader of the Opposition, Hon. Brigadier David Granger expresses distress at the reported statement made by Ms. Priya Manickchand, Minister of Foreign Affairs (ag) at a reception which was held at the Ambassador’s residence on Wednesday evening, 2nd July 2014, to mark the US’s Independence Anniversary.

APNU regards her remarks as vulgar and worst than useless. APNU calls on President Donald Ramotar to disassociate his Administration from these worthless remarks and issue an unconditional apology to H.E. Ambassador D. Brent Hardt and the people of the United States of America.

APNU is astonished that such remarks could be used by a Government Official in light of the cordial relationship existing between the Co-operative Republic of Guyana and the United States of America.
