Dominica to work with Russia for world peace – PM Skerrit

PM Skerrit addressing a panel discussion in Russia recently

Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has revealed that Dominica plans to have discussions with the Russian government over future bilateral projects and programs, including dealing with the issue of world peace.

He was addressing the media on Friday following the contract signing for the design of a National Multi-Sporting Complex in Dominica.

Skerrit said that he sees Dominica playing a role in putting an end to “all these wars and civil wars across the world.”

“I am hoping that in the near future we can work on a number of very important bilateral projects and programs but also dealing with issues of world peace; to bring to an end all of these wars and civil wars all across the world. It is having a serious impact on the way of life of everybody in the world,” he said.

Last week Skerrit visited Russia where he spoke during a panel discussion on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. He also met Russian foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, who described Dominica as Russia’s most promising partner in the Caribbean.

Skerrit said that “although we do not have the means,” it is still necessary to lend a hand in creating peace, considering that the country is a member of the world community.

“I believe that as small as we are as a country, though we do not have the means, but at least we can be part of the process of finding peace and working towards peace and tranquility in the world, we are part of the world community and we have a responsibility and obligation and we should not believe that we do not have a part to play in this…we have to assert ourselves in the architecture,” Skerrit remarked.

In fact, not only does Skerrit think that Dominica is part of the world community and should offer its assistance in whatever way possible, he also believes that the Caribbean community on a whole should be represented as a means of advancing their developmental interests.

He said that although he represented Dominica during the trip to Russia, he also tried to represent the Caribbean community.

“I represent Dominica, but when I go to these countries, as people will know, I always seek to represent the Caribbean community and to advance the interest of the Caribbean Community because I am a regionalist, I am an integrationist; I believe in integration, I believe in helping each other…So wherever I can speak on behalf of the Caribbean Community, I speak on behalf of the Caribbean Community, in advancing the interest of the whole of CARICOM,” Skerrit said.

He also took a swap at the Opposition who he said has been criticizing the trip.

“I find it strange that the Opposition is criticizing my trip to Russia. These guys forget that the Russian Ambassador came to Dominica last year 2016 to celebrate our 20th anniversary of Diplomatic relations in Dominica and Russia, and all of the UWP guys were there. Lennox Linton was there, Joseph Isaac was there, they were there shouting ‘hail to Putin,’ and I go to Russia and they sit there criticizing me,” Skerrit remarked.

    Skerrit please stop using Dominica in your nonsense. This is absolute rubbish.. what next Albert Henry DeSalvo aka the Boston Strangler rallied against violence towards women? or Sergey Golovkin legacy should be celebrated with day-cares named after him? First you tried to softly make this trip pass as if you were a CARICOM Envoy, Mr George asked for clarification, tune change. If you read more on your own, instead of scripted garbage that you only try to use as cover-up, those ignorant and transparent blunders would not be made. A man bombing other countries, oppressing people in his, and threatening to war with others is interested in which World Peace? just now you will say Russia is even more neutral than Switzerland. Tell the real purpose of you strange trip, because Dominica and Russia have had long relations, so you added nothing to the diplomatic ties.. CBI campaign? Was Steve Ferrol the ONLY person on the trip with you??? hmmmm

    I understand that this statement was written for the Labor Supporters who just received a free home, free money from the Red Clinic and free pampers for their children. In their eyes, the Dear Leader is magical and mystical. What about Crimea? What about Syria? We know that this meeting was about securing some free stuff for Dominica and I have no problem with that, but World Peace? Nope. You can’t influence World Peace if you do not have nuclear weapons. We can’t even house our Police Officers in Portsmouth.

    My 6 yr old really loves Dr. Skerrit. She came running to me today with her tablet open. ”Mommy, mommy, she giggled. “Here’s that man with the dimples again! What’s he doing now?”. ”He’s in Russia now trying to help with with world peace”, I said. ”How is he going to do that and what about us? Don’t we need money and stuff? Couldn’t he do Dominica first and then world peace after?”, she said. I responded: ”Don’t really know. It’s all very confusing. We are a small, poor country with no jobs here, a hospital that guarantees death if you go to it for any reason, but our leaders are some of the richest people in the Caribbean who now want to help other countries achieve peace’.

    She frowned: “So Mr. Dimples is not a very nice man, is that what you are saying?”.

      Don’t worry Ms. Tellepart. Dr. Skerrit, I understand has got his just desserts. I understand Mr. Putin has just appointed him Special Envoy for Syria for the Russian Federation.

      It seems that the Hon. Dr. will be based on Mosul and solely in charge of negotiating peace with ISIS. Now how’s that for poetic justice :)

    PM Skerrit, you have become the laughing stock of the world. You talking about “dealing with the issue of world peace.”. Man make peace in Dominica first, stop inciting your people to attack the opposition or any one that does not agree with you. For peace you need to be truthful, have a clean hand have integrity. When all this is accomplished then let us talk world peace. Stop being stupid you making people think Dominicans are all dotish

  6. June 13, 2017

    Politics aside :!:

    The Lord Jesus said *Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.*

    It is good and proper to encourage and promote peace in the home, the community, the government, and the world.

    However, an ancient Hebrew prophet warned his people *When they say shall peace and safety then sudden destruction shall come upon them. * There is such thing as false peace. It is deceptive and short lasting.

    Christians who read their Bible know Christ is our peace because HE made peace by the blood of His cross.

    Know Christ know peace.
    No Christ no peace.

    They also know there will be no peace until the Prince of Peace returns :!: In that day He will sit upon the Throne of His ancestor David in Jerusalem. His nail pierced Hand will raised the scepter over the nations . Every knee will bow and ever tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

      Continued:

      Until then let the rulers of all nations treat the Nation of Israel with grace because this will determined the measure of the blessing of God upon their own nation. God has said He will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel. Eventually – and not far into the future – Israel will possess and
      rule all the land God promised to Abraham and his descendants.

      I hope Mr. Skerrit will not to join with any nation that is not for Israel. The ultimate ruin of any nation that opposes Israel is a disaster foretold in the word of God.

    The PM has a reason to state that. If we interact with others, we should have a peaceful association. We should also speak our thoughts on what matters and what affects the world. What affects it affects us, wherever we reside.
    According to the words of a song, “The world’s our home” even though it is temporary and, “We are the world. We are the children of the world.” While we are here we are to promote peace. Blessed are the peacemakers.
    It is foolish to criticize the PM. Those of you who do project your ignorance. You do not want peace for the world; not even for your country. You are a sad lot and bad conversationalists. You are not pleasing God; not pleasing to Him. How can you obtain eternal life if you are not peaceful, do not promote it and laugh at it?
    How could you live in peace and at peace with yourself and with others? Shall I say you are a miserable lot? This is what you project by criticizing and judging the PM.

      Note all those peace songs and there are more. We are obligated to be peaceful and to spread peace. Those who are Christians should know this very well and practice it without fail. They should not question it. They should not laugh at it. They should not criticize it.
      I have a strong feeling, by your comments which are in your heart, mind and soul, a lot of you critics are heaping eternal burning coals on your heads. You need to ask God forgiveness and to pray and make reparation for all what you state which are unbecoming and shows you are not loving people but haters.
      Stop placing curses on yourselves. They also fall on your household, your family and your endeavors. Then you will blame the PM for your misfortune. This is mortal and spiritual food for thought.

  16. Admin: Everything submitted on your site does not constitute a law suit: There is always a source of information. I assume the administration did not like the name of the person I said submitted the information in another forum, because they say they taking action against him in Dominica! But there is nothing to fear, since the Monroe Policy was even implemented in Grenada. This is simply educational!

    The Monroe Doctrine was articulated in President James Monroe’s seventh annual message to Congress on December 2, 1823. The European powers, according to Monroe, were obligated to respect the Western Hemisphere as the United States’ sphere of interest.

    President James Monroe’s 1823 annual message to Congress contained the Monroe Doctrine, which warned European powers not to interfere in the affairs of the Western Hemisphere.

    Understandably, the United States has always taken a particular interest in its closest neighbors – the nations of the Western Hemisphere. Equally…

    • Continue:

      Equally understandably, expressions of this concern have not always been favorably regarded by other American nations.

      The Monroe Doctrine is the best known U.S. policy toward the Western Hemisphere. Buried in a routine annual message delivered to Congress by President James Monroe in December 1823, the doctrine warns European nations that the United States would not tolerate further colonization or puppet monarchs. The doctrine was conceived to meet major concerns of the moment, but it soon became a watchword of U.S. policy in the Western Hemisphere.

      The Monroe Doctrine was invoked in 1865 when the U.S. government exerted diplomatic and military pressure in support of the Mexican President Benito Juárez. This support enabled Juárez to lead a successful revolt against the Emperor Maximilian, who had been placed on the throne by the French government.

      Almost 40 years later, in 1904, European creditors of a number of Latin American countries threatened armed…

    • Finally:

      Almost 40 years later, in 1904, European creditors of a number of Latin American countries threatened armed intervention to collect debts. President Theodore Roosevelt promptly proclaimed the right of the United States to exercise an “international police power” to curb such “chronic wrongdoing.” As a result, U. S. Marines were sent into Santo Domingo in 1904, Nicaragua in 1911, and Haiti in 1915, ostensibly to keep the Europeans out. Other Latin American nations viewed these interventions with misgiving, and relations between the “great Colossus of the North” and its southern neighbors remained strained for many years.

      In 1962, the Monroe Doctrine was invoked symbolically when the Soviet Union began to build missile-launching sites in Cuba. With the support of the Organization of American States, President John F. Kennedy threw a naval and air quarantine around the island. After several tense days, the Soviet Union agreed to withdraw the missiles and dismantle the…

    • The End:

      President John F. Kennedy threw a naval and air quarantine around the island. After several tense days, the Soviet Union agreed to withdraw the missiles and dismantle the sites. Subsequently, the United States dismantled several of its obsolete air and missile bases in Turkey.

    Really? Dominica playing a role in putting an end to all these wars? If countries like the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, France, and all these major super powers have failed in putting an end to these wars, how can Skeritt accomplish this goal? This is just a front to establish relations with Putin. But remember GRENADA after the Cuban influence became a strategic threat to the US.

Following Erika he invited Lennox to dialogue concerning reconstruction​ and admitted and praised Lennox for his impeccable character and general input!!

    He took back all the praise following the CABS interview!

      It is good for the Russian authority to see how people live in other parts of the world. At least, generally Dominicans get along. There is no war in Dominica. Nationals look relatively happy. This is what the Russian Ambassador observed when he visited Dominica and other islands, if he visited elsewhere. He should also visit D/ca at certain times of celebrations.

    A DELUSION OF GRANDEUR is the fixed, false belief that one possesses superior qualities such as genius, fame, omnipotence, or wealth. It is most often a symptom of schizophrenia, but can also be a symptom found in psychotic personality!

  34. Dominica Roosevelt Skerrit, working with Russia for World peace? Russia which destroys even it next door neighbors, by creating entropy in neighboring countries, and in the process sending troops in and annex the countries simply to destroy their democracy.

    The only hope of saving Dominica, from Putin, and Roosevelt Skerrit is this:

    “In 1823, the American President, James Monroe, promulgated a national policy which has served the region well for almost 200 years. He stated that no foreign power or nation would be allowed to enter, and take over, any of the republics of the Western Hemisphere, nor could they install a puppet ruler.”

    As far as far as I am concerned Skerrit is now a tool and puppet of Russia, hence the Monroe policy can be utilized by the United States to get Skerrit out of there and free Dominica from the bondage of economic slavery, and saving our nation from becoming an autocracy!

    Had it not be for the Monroe Policy, Grenada would be an autocracy with a…

      Had it not for the Monroe Policy, Grenada would be an autocracy with a puppet dictator in 2017. Eugenia Charles knew of the Monroe doctrine, and policy of 1823, that is why she called on the then late President Ronald Regan to get the Cuban, and Russians out of Grenada. Some of us remember the less than one day it took the U. S. Marines to kick some Butt, expelling the Russians.

      We should be concern about this!

      When a Russian woman goes to Dominica and open a rum-shop, we should be suspicious! The CIA should be concern; A bar, or rum shop whatever it is term, is not an industry; as to say Dominicans are not inebriated enough, therefore it takes a Russian so come to sell our people more rum.

    • So, Man Bite Dog what is the difference in rum and Vodka!

      Don’t you know that Vodka is alcohol too, and processing is the same? The fact is if there is a Russian woman in Dominica involved in the operation of a Night Club, Bar, or Rum shop, that is highly inappropriate, and should by every means arouse suspicions.

      That is not normal business!

      We can import vodka from Russia if need be; we do not need a Russian going to sell rum and beer to our people; in that case they are taking from the country rather bringing wealth into the country. We want technological industries in our country, not smut and filth, not corrupted business, which sole purpose appears to be money laundering, or headquarters for spies, and the introduction of autocracy in our country.

    • Okay Steve: Nevertheless, it is because of the Monroe doctrine which gave the late President Ronald Regan the right to take Grenada back from Cuba, and Russia, preventing communism from talking hold in Grenada. You need to probably pay a little attention and figure out what Putin is doing around the world today.

      If he was capable of influencing the outcome of the last general election in the United States, what do you think he can do to a shallow minded man like Skerrit?

      Skerrit is going to become the puppet Putin will try to keep in power in Dominica, when that becomes obvious, the United States will have cause to invade Dominica, and put an end to Skerrit’s reign!

      Don’t you think for one moment that the CIA and such organizations are not monitoring Skerrit’s foolish behavior! Time will tell!

      You say what happened when Russia tried to install missiles in Cuba in 1961/62, you remember what Kennedy did?

      I think we can discount that because that option has been available for a long time, first though locally based, Russian owned CBI agent CCP and later through Apex Capital Parners. who are also authorized agents for the CBI programme They too have an office in Roseau (Kennedy Ave.) as well as a Moscow based one.
      No, I think the agreements signed last Nov. between Russia and Dominica go deeper than that and maybe tied to the strategic importance of Dominica’s location, how that could be utilized and make Skerrit some big bucks. Don’t be surprised if we see a dedicated diplomatic permanent presence of the Russian Federation in Dominica before too long.

    CNN reported this morning that the largest single group of asylum seekers in the U.S.A. today are Venezuelans. This has been reported on before by the likes of Fox news. However, in order not be accused of having a right-wing agenda I refer to an article in the left orientated Guardian of the U.K. reporting likewise. http://www.theguardian.com)World) Venezuela, under the headline “Venezuela asylum claims in the US soar as economic crisis deepens”.
    I trust that , in his quest for world peace, Mr. Skerret also mentioned this to the Russian government and expressed his concerns for the suffering people of Venezuela, the country of birth of his erstwhile mentor and benefactor and with which both Dominica and Russia enjoy a close relationship.

      CNN did not mention the Mexicans? I think CNN is bias. Some have built tunnels to the US and to ply their drug trade. Today, they go to Canada and apply for refugee status. This is why President Trump said he will build a wall. It is to keep out (mostly) the Mexicans.

    but he change his tongue man; while addressing the round table he said he was representing CARICOM now he is saying he is talking on behalf of CARICOM he is a confused man. CARICOM is a well constituted body therefore if you are representing or speaking on behalf you better have clearance to do so. What may have been politically correct for him to say is something like – although not officially representing CARICOM or talking on its behalf I am confident that my colleagues will not mind me saying that CARICOM like Dominica is interested in deepening …………… etc etc; but to boldly say you speaking on behalf or representing when you know you do not have that mandate or authority is madness. and I think he smell the rat because the CARICOM Secretariat knew nothing of it – so now he is trying to water it down.

    Your intention may be good but the only true peace we will find is in Christ Jesus. As we speak, world leaders are preparing to implement the one world government which will deceive the nations and provoke a great falling.
    44 of the 56 signers of the declaration of Independence were Freemasons of the European order meaning that they were determined to building an occult form of a democracy that was based on the Atlantean scheme led by Sir Francis Bacon. Atlantis citizens thought that they took orders from ancient gods and were destroyed because they turned their backs on them.
    here’s a simple source summary even of Freemasons.

        Let the economists save us! let the world leaders save us! Let our physical needs be met and let us bathe in money and vanity and the lusts thereof. Continue to live in ignorance and mischief that there is no evil, therefore there is no good.
        We must differentiate between religion and spirituality. God is spiritual! He sees through the hearts of men. Why do so many people take offense toward the word of God who has promised nothing but life and prosperity in all aspects and support the negative, selfish indulgent?
        Just as in the days of Noah so too will the coming of man be! Look around you and notice the distractions of rumors of war while Satan establishes himself!
        Religious babble will not help us but faith in Jesus Christ will. He never said that there will be no trouble but he said that he will be with us always.
        I believe with all of my heart and i trust that you will. I Don’t know you but much love to you!

        “We cannot have the peace of Christ Jesus and not put it on display through our works of Love”. That’s very true. I also want you to know that i am not lashing at the prime minister. What i do know is that there is a counterfeit of a lot of things of God in this world. Things which the natural man cannot understand. To live in the spirit is different from living in the flesh and this is something which must be experienced in order to understand clearly. Psalm 91 says he that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High. Not who visits.
        In my opinion, i cannot determine who is good or bad by just looking at someone because i would be exercising judgement and only God sees through the hearts of men.
        I do know one thing:
        Things of both worlds are beginning to be revealed.
        The question is how do you discern the counterfeit from the authentic?
        Only Jesus Christ can give you that gift! It is free and available to everyone who repents and follows his ways. Open up your heart to…

    • Roosevelt Skerrit…………. who will never understand. All he understands right now is that he is in the news in Dominica, which makes him appear to be defecating in high grass. The locals will read that and believe Skerrit is doing great.

      When I was a little boy in Wesley, I would hear people say “when you s…” (defecating) in long (tall) grass, be careful because the grass might cut you behind!

      We here of the G7’s and G8’s of Governments: Russia is not a member of any of the two, so how is Skerrit and Putin going to work together for world peace! Someone need to remind Roosevelt that in Russia, and internationally anybody who opposes Putin, are found dead.

      Members of there opposition are poisoned, they turn green, they have to come to the United States to get rid of the poison in the system, one died in England a couple years ago. Good for you Roosevelt you have peaked into the right circle, I hope you will not have any regrets!

    My advice to you is playing a role in putting an end to corrupt, poor governance, lack of transparency and civil division you have perpetrated across the Dominica.” You run our decent Dominica as if it is your private property. You are politically incompetent and politically illiterate about good governance, accountability and decency in public office. It is time that y9ou take your supporting cronies with you and go to Russia or China. Go take care of their welfare. Bloody idiot.

He proved all of them wrong; and so did Isaiah the prophet of God, who existed moons and moons before Christopher Columbus; here is what Isaiah said @Chapter 40: 22: “It is he that sits upon the circle of the earth” How would Columbus know this, if God had not revealed to him for the sake of knowledge of Him to the world

What have you done to champion peace to a people who have sacrificed all to Dominica? Absolutely nothing. Skerrit you are nothing but a snake and a liar who says things to please an intended audience. You in power for 17 years caricom in existence for over 40 years you have done more to split the region and try to exhault yourself above the rest yet all the islands are doing better than dominica.

      Let me add in the words of Haile Selassie “until the philosophy that hold one race superior than another .. everywhere is war”. Peace in the world will only be achieved with forgiveness, reconciliation, humility, truth, patience, kindness, gentleness, self control, and most of all love. Ask Bishop Mal he will agree with me. These are called the fruits of the spirit. As long as there are men like you Pm, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong UN, Donald Trump, Duterte, Adolf, Castro, Chavez and the likes there will be no peace on the world. Look at all the money spent on nuclear weapons, rockets, guns, and bullets. Men like you get your ego bigger than you can handle and drag Dominica in your crap. You are representing yourself​ in Russia not dominica or the region. You being there signing documents was not approved by parliment or Caricom. Keep fooling your blind mice with your lies and deceit. That’s what you good at.

        Haile Selassie placed himself as a God, above God. This is why he gave his name “Haile”. I would not use his philosophy as an example or to prove a point. It is like using that of Hitler. Furthermore, Haile Selassie was a dictator, an oppressor.
        Do you know any of the nationals from that part of the world as Ethiopia and Eritrea? They all look alike. They look like relatives. These are the only nationals of a country who look alike. Do you know why? Haile Selassie gave the authorization for them to have affairs with one another and to procreate. Therefore, that man is not a good person to refer to. I wonder where his soul is in eternity.

    Can Mr. Skerrit please advise the Dominican citizens the nature, if not the content, of the “several important documents”, his Foreign Minister , Francine Baron, signed on our behalf with the same Russian Foreign Minister, Serge Lavrov , when she met him in Sochi in Russia in November of last yea? The Russian Foreign Minister confirmed that when he met with Skerrit in St. Petersburg and that was published in a press release by the Russian govt. but as usual, we Dominicans are kept in the dark. Maybe it is business as usual for Roosevelt Skerrit and therefore it is none of our damned business? Mr. Skerrit is portraying himself as a champion of world peace.
