[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Private Sector Commission (PSC) of Guyana believes the manner in which the Government of Guyana reprimanded the US Ambassador, Brent Hardt recently for representing the US Foreign Policy Goals in Guyana is not consistent with the norms expected in international diplomacy and of two countries that enjoy a friendly relationship.

During the US independence celebration on Wednesday (July 02), at the home of the Ambassador, Acting Foreign Affairs Minister, Priya Manickchand unleashed Government’s wrath, describing the conduct of the Ambassador as ‘unprofessional and undiplomatic.’ She was booed and heckled by the crowd during her speech.

In recent times, Hardt has been pressuring the government, more specifically President Donald Ramotar to set a date for the long overdue local government elections. More recently, he chastised Ramotar for selectively upholding the constitution of Guyana.

The PSC in a statement today called on the Government to use all the diplomatic channels available to them in the future to register their displeasure in the conduct of any Foreign Service Officer and to resolve any differences in those Countries’ Foreign Policy Objectives being executed in Guyana.

“We believe that Guyana’s Interest should always be represented with the highest standards of Diplomacy and Compliance to International Protocols. We also call on the Foreign Service Community and their representatives in Guyana to accord the same respect towards the Government and the People of Guyana,” the PSC said.

  1. The Ambassador got exactly what he was looking for and deserved.
    the lady called a spade a spade for exactly what it is and she is right and correct.
    the ambassador is very lucky to be in guyana until his time up and was not kicked out on spot when he uttered his trash and bullysm.
    The Ambassador said what he had to say and the lady spoke her mind.
    question ofr the idiota..is it okay for a foreign minister for a foreign power to say what they like in our country and we must stay quiet?
    there are those who will sell their soles to massa so that massa can install them to power where they can butcher our country again. the lady didit the only way its supposed to be done once the government didnt ask him to leave our country .
    the so called psc are accustomed to sucking americans fo their five US cents so ofcourse they will get on their knees as expected of them
