The new Permanent Representative of Barbados to the Organization of American States (OAS), Noel Lynch, today presented his credentials to the Secretary General of the Organization, Luis Almagro.

Ambassador Lynch said Barbados sees the OAS “as the premier multilateral organization in the Americas working to promote dialogue and to strengthen peace.” He pledged his country´s continuing commitment to support “the programs and activities in the critical areas of democracy, human rights, multidimensional security, and integral development which constitute the four pillars of this Organization.”

For his part, Secretary General Almagro recalled that the Caribbean country was among “the first group of newly independent CARICOM countries to join the Organization in 1967.” Since then, he said “its representation has been constant and active in the critical debates at the OAS”.

The first Assistant Secretary General of the OAS from a Caribbean country was the Barbadian Ambassador Valerie McComie.
