Cuba and Trinidad & Tobago Are Protecting the Environment
Havana, Cuba, Jul 18.- The Ambassador of Trinidad & Tobago to Cuba, Jennifer Jones-Kernahan, stated that both countries are committed to protect the human species given the threats the world is facing due to climate change.
In statements to Prensa Latina, Jones-Kernahan described the efforts made by Cuba in the care of environment as immense, especially considering its limited resources and the crushing effects of the illegal economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the United States since the early 60s.
We believe in a healthy and sustainable future for generations to come, said Jones-Kernahan, who, accompanied by members of the diplomatic corps in Havana and the Antonio Nunez Jimenez Foundation, planted several trees in the Ecological Park Monte Barreto.
Referring to the 50th anniversary of the independence of Trinidad & Tobago coming up on August 31st, she stressed that environmental protection is a priority for her country.
She also urged Caribbean nations, the most vulnerable to climate change, to follow the strategies developed by Cuba in this regard and take advantage of its knowledge and preparation.
Jones-Kernahan highlighted the good relations with Cuba and said her government understands the role of Havana in the region, for unity and integration. (Prensa Latina).
