KAMLAPrime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar has responded to Opposition criticism for her decision to co-sponsor a United States resolution in the United Nations Security Council.

The US resolution which was passed and ratified by over 100 members of the UN is meant to legally bind states in the fight to prevent their nationals from going abroad and fighting for militant groups and returning to their homelands to carryout terrorist attacks.

PM Persad-Bissessar said Opposition Leader, Dr Keith Rowley position that Trinidad and Tobago hides from the resolution against terrorism is attempt to politicize a grave issue that has claimed millions of lives.

The Prime Minister was referring Dr. Rowley’s statements that T&T could not afford to declare war on terrorists at a time when you can stay away.

She criticized his viewpoint saying that Dr. Rowley fails to understand that the fight against terrorism is not a responsibility that can be ignored, or avoided.
