Gonsalves, speaking to the recent decision by the Opposition to seek ties with mainland china once elected to office, said that SVG diplomats work with the Chinese government on common issues of climate change, reform of the United Nations, even matters in the World Health Organization in which they assisted Taiwan in becoming an observer member of the World Health Assembly.
The Prime Minister said that China has helped this country along with Brazil, India, and Turkey among other emerging economies with representation at the World Bank and the IMF.
“The NDP”, Gonsalves said, “has never stated that it held discussions with the People’s Republic of China.”
