Hardt reprimand not consistent with norms – private sector

The Private Sector Commission (PSC) today said that the rebuke issued to US Ambassador Brent Hardt by acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Priya Manickchand on Wednesday was not in keeping with diplomatic norms.

The PSC statement follows:

The Private Sector Commission of Guyana Ltd believes the manner in which the Government of Guyana reprimanded the US Ambassador recently for representing the US Foreign Policy Goals in Guyana is not consistent with the norms expected in international diplomacy and of two countries that enjoy a friendly relationship.

The PSC calls on the Government of Guyana to use all the diplomatic channels available to them in the future to register their displeasure in the conduct of any Foreign Service Officer and to resolve any differences in those Countries’ Foreign Policy Objectives being executed in Guyana. We believe that Guyana’s Interest should always be represented with the highest standards of Diplomacy and Compliance to International Protocols. We also call on the Foreign Service Community and their representatives in Guyana to accord the same respect towards the Government and the People of Guyana.
