Gya: U.S. funding regional anti-terror fight

GUYANA and other members of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) are in line for support from the United States for the regional anti-terrorism fight, the Organisation of American States (OAS) announced yesterday.

A press release from the organisation in Washington said the U.S. Government will contribute US$945,000 to the Inter-American Committee Against Terrorism (CICTE) to help fund training of customs and border officials, an aviation security training programme, and assessments to enhance border management capacity.

CICTE coordinates anti-terrorism efforts and strategies among OAS member countries.

The U.S. donation will provide support for three programmes, according to the organisation.
