US Southern Command chief to visit Guyana

The US Embassy stressed that Guyana and the US have a longstanding security cooperation.

The Guyana government announced on Sunday that the head of the US Southern Command, General Laura Jane Richardson, will arrive in the country on Monday for various official duties.

Richardson’s visit to the South American country included meetings with Guyana’s senior government and security officials to discuss their bilateral security cooperation, the Guyanese government explained in a press release.

During his two days in Guyana’s capital, Georgetown, Richardson will hold meetings with the South American country’s President Mohamed Irfan Ali and the Guyana Defense Forces Commander, Brigadier Godfrey Bess.

The US Embassy stressed that Guyana and the US have a longstanding security cooperation.

In addition, security cooperation between the two countries includes cooperation against any regional threat and challenge, capacity building exercises, bilateral training, exchange of experiences and events to promote the inclusion of women in security and defense work.

Richardson will use his visit to Guyana to participate in a conference on Security, Peace and Caribbean Women, which the Caribbean country is organizing in collaboration with the Florida National Guard (USA) from this Monday to next Wednesday.

The US official will be accompanied by Guyana’s First Lady Arya Ali and Guyanese Ambassador to the US Sarah-Ann Lynch to receive participants of the Caribbean event.

Guyana was Richardson’s first visit to a South American country in ten months, during which time he was head of US Southern Command, and five months later he met with Caribbean public safety and security leaders during the Caribbean Security Conference in Barbados. .
