Caricom backs Antigua in US gaming dispute
The Caribbean Community (Caricom) has announced its full backing for Antigua and Barbuda and called for the US to co-operate with the territory in its efforts to secure compensation.
In a communiqué coming out of its 24th inter-sessional meeting, which concluded on Wednesday, the regional bloc stated: "The Caribbean Community affirms its full support for Antigua and Barbuda in its fight to obtain United States of America compliance with the ruling of the World Trade Organization (WTO) Dispute Settlement Body on the subject of cross-border provision of gambling and betting services."
"The Conference of Heads of Government calls on the US to settle the dispute with Antigua and Barbuda by honouring its obligations to respect international rules and by complying with the decision of the WTO in this matter.
Those rules apply to all countries whether small, large, rich or poor. All countries must abide by their obligations within the community of nations in the WTO. The community has stood with the US and the community of nations to defend the imperative of full compliance with internationally accepted norms and rules.
