The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) accepted on Friday, March 17, 2023, the Greek request for Greece’s participation in CARICOM as an observer, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

It is noted that the Caribbean Community consists of 15 members, the vast majority of which are island states.

The General Secretariat of the aforementioned regional organization welcomed Greece’s interest in further strengthening its long-term friendly relations with the CARICOM member-states, noting, at the same time, that it looks forward to an enhanced political dialogue and cooperation with Greece, reports the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Furthermore, the announcement adds that this development reflects the country’s expanding relations with the states of the region, provides new opportunities for cooperation with them, especially on issues of common interest such as environmental protection and insularity, and highlights the increasingly important international role of Greece, which is no longer limited to a narrow regional geographical context.

It is recalled that this development was preceded by the recent visit of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Dendias, to Latin American and Caribbean countries in February, as well as the signing of the agreement on the participation of Greece as an observer in the Central American Integration System (SICA) on February 24.
