Ja: Caricom still talking about Haiti
GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) - Caribbean leaders will meet in Grenada tomorrow to consider whether to restore diplomatic ties with Haiti, officials said yesterday.By the time Caricom acts, Haiti will be solidly on its feet and no longer a failed state.
A delegation of five foreign ministers from the 15-member Caribbean Community visited Haiti earlier this month. After the trip ended July 14, they said they were satisfied with Haiti's pledges to hold elections and uphold justice, indicating the way had been cleared for resuming diplomatic ties.
Seven Caribbean heads of government are expected to attend the one-day meeting in Grenada to review the delegation's final report, said Huntley Medley, a Community spokesman. They will most likely make a recommendation to other Caribbean leaders who are not attending the meeting.
