Minister of Foreign and CARICOM Affairs, Dennis Moses, says the National Security Council has established an inter-ministerial team, which has been mandated to present options to treat with the increase in the number of Venezuelan nationals fleeing their country to seek refuge in T&T.

Minister Moses gave this response in the Senate this afternoon after being questioned on the issue by Independent Senator Paul Richards.

The Minister was asked, what is Government’s policy regarding these migrants.

He said the inter-ministerial team’s draft response of Trinidad and Tobago to the Venezuelan migrant issue is being reviewed.
