Our countries have long-enjoyed a close relationship based on shared history and common values and beliefs. The Prime Minister and I today reaffirmed our commitment to this relationship, and discussed how we could continue to strengthen our ties and our co-operation in a number of areas, including economic development, tourism and counter-narcotics co-operation. We also had productive discussions on a range of foreign policy and regional issues. I look forward to further useful discussions in all of these areas.

In the meantime, I would like to wish the St Kitts and Nevis Olympic team the very best of luck. I will be following their progress with interest.”
