Basseterre, Saint Kitts (25th November, 2022) – The Minister of Foreign Affairs et al, the Right Honourable Dr. Denzil L. Douglas, continues to champion the Government’s agenda by engaging with bilateral partners and exploring avenues that would aid in the development of Saint Kitts and Nevis.
The Honourable Minister, on Friday 25th November, 2022, met with the High Commissioner of the United Kingdom to Saint Kitts and Nevis, His Excellency Scott Furssedonn Wood MVO, to discuss the priorities of the Government, and the relationship between Saint Kitts and Nevis and the United Kingdom.
