The Minister of National Security has described the Opposition Leader’s statements as unfortunate.
He said Dr. Rowley’s and the Peoples National Movement’s (PNM) position on Trinidad and Tobago’s co-sponsoring of a United Nations resolution meant to fight international terrorism is short sighted.
Minister Gary Griffith stated that the PNM’s position is tantamount to hiding and hoping that terrorist would leave this country alone because it has not interfered with them.
According to Minister Griffith, T&T’s decision to work with the international community demonstrates our ability to contribute at the highest levels of world diplomacy.
He called on the government’s detractors to study law enforcement and understand that the doctrine of prevention far outweighs the benefits of any after the fact, reactive cures.
