Haiti needs ‘full-time activity’, Sir Ronald Sanders says as he reveals withdrawal from OAS working group


by Robert A Emmanuel (Antigua Observer) Antigua and Barbuda’s Ambassador to the Organisation of American States (OAS), Sir Ronald Sanders, said chairing the OAS’s working group on Haiti would require his full attention, as he explained his decision to withdraw from the group.

Sir Ronald, who was selected to initially serve on a 14-member working group to study the ongoing situation in Haiti, said that he already serves in various capacities which would take his attention away from an issue that, in his opinion, “would take a lot of full-time activity”.

Ambassador Sanders not only serves as the OAS Ambassador for Antigua and Barbuda, but he is also the non-resident Ambassador to Canada as well as the Ambassador to the United States.

“In addition to that, I continue to write papers for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Prime Minister’s Office, and I simply do not have the time to devote to [the working group], so if I would not be able to give it the fullness of attention that I think the Haitian problem requires [it is my duty to withdraw],” he stated.
