As part of the visit yesterday, President Maduro held private meetings with President of Dominica Charles Savarin and Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit to discuss “how together we can do more in order to restore the situation in Dominica and to restore the hope of the people in Dominica and how we can do more to help them”.– / 20 Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring!
