With reference to news reports that Grenada has lost its voting rights in the United Nations as a result of unpaid dues, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs assures the nation that on 5 February 2018, the Permanent Mission of Grenada to the UN dispatched a cheque to the United Nations Secretariat for processing of Grenada’s dues for 2018. In that respect, the Ministry expects to see this reflected soon in the UN’s information system.
In real terms, Grenada has not been prevented from exercising its voting rights in the community of nations because the first voting opportunity of 2018 is in June when Grenada votes in support of candidates (member states) for non-permanent membership on the United Nations Security Council.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs assures the nation that Grenada continues to maintain a high level of credibility and respect at the United Nations and in the wider international community.
