Com­ing Sun­day... Jeanelle van Glaa­nenWeygel writes – Ja­maica: a strong voice in the OAS for over 50 years

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION -

In his state­ment cel­e­brat­ing Ja­maica’s In­de­pen­dence in 1962, then sec­re­tary gen­eral of the Or­ga­ni­za­tion of Amer­i­can States (OAS) Dr José Mora ex­pressed the wish to ul­ti­mately wel­come Ja­maica to the OAS, and on Au­gust 20, 1969, Ja­maica proudly as­cended to mem­ber­ship of this hemi­spheric or­gan­i­sa­tion. Ja­maica has been a long-stand­ing force in the In­ter-Amer­i­can Sys­tem as ex­em­pli­fied by its early state­ment on its for­eign pol­icy when the con­tro­ver­sial is­sue of its re­la­tions with Cuba arose.
