PM Browne still ‘pretty sure’ United States will establish Embassy in Antigua and Barbuda


Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Gaston Browne says he’s still “pretty sure” the United States will establish an embassy on the island.

Last July Government’s Chief of Staff Lionel ‘Max’ Hurst said Antigua and Barbuda had designated a plot of land for use by the US government, ahead of an anticipated announcement on two Eastern Caribbean countries being selected for an embassy.

The US State Department had previously revealed that the Joe Biden administration was considering the establishment of two embassies in the subregion.

Since then, it has been widely expected that Antigua will be chosen as one of the sites, given that it is one of the countries with the largest populations.

The opposition United Progressive Party had described the anticipated announcement as good news for the people of the region.

“We would welcome, even more, if Antigua and Barbuda is one of the countries chosen for an embassy,” the party said at the time.

  1. But of course! If America believes China’s presences in Antigua is for US intelligence gathering, they’ll want to have their counter intelligence, covert operation within proximity.

    • @Cannabis Indica…with today’s tech forces drones to infrared, sonar/microwave. nano technology the US Armed Forces from the Space Force to the CIA on yachts, they can easily monitor China’s movements at sea(even if it’s their Trawling Fleets which visit from time to time, they dare not send no subs nor other amphibious vehicles though).

      What China appears to be doing which the USA have little control over, is shipping its HUEman resources, goods and other services in mass towards the Caribbean, in an attempt to not only capture the consumer market($), but control them. Now, this is something which America cannot even control, on its own soil. Of course, it’s the DEMON which is haunting DEMOCRACY in America.
      This demon is fed by greedy corporations looking for cheap labour, and US Trade laws which China is able to get around.
