Caribbean ministers of foreign affairs and trade will convene in Belize tomorrow for the Eighteenth Meeting of the Council of Ministers of the Caribbean Forum of African, Caribbean and Pacific States known as CARIFORUM.

Today, in advance of that session, senior officials met at the Radisson, to hammer out technical matters. CARIFORUM, constitutes all the CARICOM Member States, plus Cuba and the Dominican Republic.

It is expected that in the margins of the meeting, the Barbadian and Jamaican foreign ministers will discuss a prickly issue of the movement of Jamaican nationals into Barbados, as one Jamaican woman claims she was sexually assaulted during a search by Barbadian Immigration authorities.

Cariforum Ministers Meet

Foreign Ministers from throughout the Caribbean are in Belize tonight for the Eighteenth Meeting of the Council of Ministers of CARIFORUM.

The one day event was chaired by Belize's Foreign Minister Wilfred Elrington who told us that much of the deliberations have been bogged down trying to get past a technical hurdle: The Dominican Republic, which is a member of Cariforum, but not Caricom wants to make sure its interests are safeguarded.

Hon. Wilfred Elrington, Minister of Foreign Affairs
"The impression we are getting is that the Dominican Republic has some reservation in relation to the rule of SG in Caricom and the reporting processor, they seem to believe (that's the impression I am getting) that there is going to be more of a bias in favor of Caricom countries than in fact Dominican Republic. You see we have to have consensus and they are the outsider as it were. The rest of the Caricom countries have no difficulty. Their attempt is to try to match the opinion of the Dominican Republic with that of the Caricom countries; we want to find an accommodation because we all have to agree if we are to move forward."

Elrington told us that he had no knowledge of meetings between the Jamaican and Barbadian Foreign Ministers to discuss the free movement of Jamaicans into Barbados.
