The Heads of Government of CARICOM remain deeply concerned at the severe impact of the
ongoing invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation on energy, nuclear security and
safety, the environment and global food security.
We register, in particular, our grave concern at the negative impact of the war on the global
economy, and on the economies in our Region, where disruptions in trade and high fuel
prices have resulted in extremely high rates of inflation reflected in increased prices for
goods and services for the people of our Region.
The Region urges a return to mature diplomacy and calls on all relevant bodies to intensify
engagement, to propel an urgent and enduring resolution to the conflict and to build peace.
We call for full adherence to the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter.
