Brazilian military officials meet with members of Antigua and Barbuda government

ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- The prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Gaston Browne, and the attorney general, Steadroy Benjamin, received a visiting delegation of seven military officials from Brazil on Tuesday morning.

The military officials came to follow-up on many of the pledges reiterated by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff to Browne during his recent visit to Brazil.

Brazil has offered to map the seabed around Antigua and Barbuda with very sophisticated equipment, and to assist in demarcating maritime borders between Antigua and Barbuda and its several neighbours. The South American country has also agreed to train Antiguans and Barbudans to become merchant seamen.

The Brazilians also assured the Antigua and Barbuda team that they will continue to work with the International Criminal Police Organization, or INTERPOL, which acts as a clearing-house for information exchange among and between states, in the provision of information exchange on the movement of identified criminals.
