Speaking at the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Heads of government meeting in St Kitts, Skerrit denounced NATO action against free Libya and expressed the full solidarity of the government and people of Dominica with the Libyan people and their Leader Muammar Gaddafi.
"We are ready to offer all assistance which you need to support the Libyan people... and I myself am proud of the relationship I have with the Leader Muammar Gaddafi, he said. He also expressed his support to the African initiative.
Skerrit however did not elaborate on the type of assistance that he was ready togive to the Libyan leader and people.
Skerrit’s remarks came as the heads of state of CARICOM openly condemned what they referred to as white racist aggression against Libya and called for an immediate halt to this aggression.
The Heads pointed to what they referred to as NATO’s indiscriminate targeting of civilians in residential areas and called for an immediate halt to the aggression claiming that it was a violation of the UN Security Council resolution, which was aimed at protecting civilians.
Current Chairman of CARICOM , the Prime Minister of St Kitts said the group understood the roots of the plot being hatched against Libya because of its pro-Africa policies and its oil potential.
