U.S Ambassador calls for a truce PM says he’s free to break it


Prime Minister Gaston Browne has said that the U.S Ambassador to Antigua and Barbuda visited him recently asking for a “truce.”

However, the PM said while he agreed to a truce on general matters it did not include discussion on the World Trade Organisation dispute over gaming.

“But even though I tell her there is going to be a truce, you know me, I am going to speak without fear of favour,” Browne told his radio station.

“So no U.S President, no ambassador, no diplomat in Washington is going to stop me from speaking without fear or favour,” he added

Browne said he is not attacking the United States since “we enjoy good relations with them and we would want those relations to strengthen because they are a little strained based on how they treat us with the WTO issue.”

He said, “you have to respect the sovereignty of the state of Antigua and Barbuda notwithstanding our size.”

“I cannot have no ambassador coming to my office and tell me I should not say this or should not say that,” the prime minister insisted.

When asked why the U.S was calling truce Browne said: “they do not like people to speak openly about the hypocrisy that is happening.”

  1. All I will say to this idiot let Venezuela feed your people. “Don’t bite the hands that is feeding you.” I have said to you via this media, hope you have prepared your Madison Ave people who love good living on Mauby pocket for the hard times to come. “The chicken has come home to roost.” Hope you have a plan B because Antigua can’t feed it self. All it takes is one US sanction, just like your Venezuela and the hard times are on us. When your Madison Ave people can’t jump on AA, JB, BA or Virgin you will know what they think of the world ass.
    Just giving the world ass some advice. Keep out of America and Venezuela business you just want to be heard, going to the OAS running off your mouth and you know if America cough we catch a virus. You go ahead follow that dictator down in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
