Guyana government to meet with US officials on controversial democracy project
Published on January 18, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (GINA) -- Invitations have been exchanged and commitments made for a meeting between the government of Guyana and US officials on the controversial USAID leadership and democracy project, Head of the Presidential Secretariat Dr Roger Luncheon said on Thursday at his post-Cabinet press briefing.

Luncheon reiterated the government’s position that genuine engagement on the way forward cannot be with government negotiating under duress.

He said that if in the exchange there is indeed an across the table proposal and discussion in a mature bilateral spirit, then there is no reason the negotiation would not end in bilateral agreement.

The USAID project was not approved by Cabinet and this was formally indicated to the relevant authorities, but unconfirmed reports later indicated that USAID project activities were being implemented, despite the embassy being in receipt of the formal correspondence from Cabinet voicing its disapproval.
