Suriname Ambassador Mehroen Nisa Kurban-BaDoe today paid her last courtesy call to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Carl Greenidge. After four years of service, Ambassador Kurban-BaDoe’s tour has come to an end.
“I hope to see the continuation of dialogue and the deepening of understanding between Guyana and Suriname,” Minister Greenidge stressed.
The level of interface between Guyana and Suriname had enabled the organisation of recent productive meetings between President David Granger and President Dési Bouterse, he further noted.
Part of the outcome of those discussions was the decision to appoint special envoys who will be responsible for ensuring that relations between Guyana and Suriname remain continuous and focused on collaboration in areas of the environment, agriculture, trade and tourism, and oil and gas.
Furthermore, Ambassador Kurban-Baboe expressed her desire to see relations between Guyana and Suriname continue to flourish beyond her tenure. She also highlighted the efforts of the Guyana-Suriname Cooperation Council, which reconvened earlier this year.
“The relationship has been fruitful and we are looking forward to another meeting of the Cooperation Council,” Ambassador Kurban-Baboe said.
After four years of service, her tour has come to an end.
Formal diplomatic relations between the Cooperative Republic of Guyana and the Republic of Suriname were established on November 25, 1975.
