CARICOM-Cuba summit ends

Cuban and CARICOM leaders have ended their one-day summit in Barbados, with Havana saying the deliberations "exceeded expectations."

CARICOM chairman and Suriname President, Chandrika-Persad Santokhi, says the summit, which coincided with 50 years of diplomatic relations between Havana and four CARICOM countries, solidifies the strong partnership between CARICOM and Cuba.

He said the summit had adopted a conference declaration, which is further testimony of the commitment to further the partnership.

Among other things, the Declaration calls for simplifying access criteria across donors and multilateral funds to accelerate climate finance to the region, taking into account the unique and special circumstances of small island developing states.
