A “tragic and heinous event” Says Camillo Gonsalves +Video

Foreign ministers, representatives of civil society, and OAS officials roundly condemned the attack in which 49 people were murdered and another 53 injured in the early-morning hours of Sunday, June 12, in Orlando Florida.

The Minister of Economic Planning and Sustainable Development of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Camillo Gonsalves, described it as a “tragic and heinous event” and said that his country offered its “support in ridding the world of hate and the tools of hate.”

The profuse expressions of solidarity given today by the foreign ministers at the plenary of the General Assembly came after the show of unity that occurred on Sunday, during the Secretary General’s dialogue with civil society, when numerous groups with major differences of opinion, with opposing positions entrenched for hundreds of years, observed a respectful minute of silence to honor the victims.
