When will Guyana appoint an ambassador to the UN?

In the past, we have witnessed many embarrassing episodes in which Guyanese diplomats were given last-minute instructions to attend bilateral and multilateral meetings, and they were sent without proper briefings, without the necessary documents and not in a timely manner, resulting in a poor image of Guyana. A good example was the recent OIC Heads summit meeting in Senegal.
Guyanese diplomats need to be versed in the history and activities of the forum they are attending, should know what to expect and should be actively involved in the deliberations of these meetings. It is my hope that the new minister will be given the freedom to change Takuba Lodge.
