A team of United States congressmen and military officials have arrived in Guyana as part of its familiarisation visit which was confirmed by Government late last week.
Among those who arrived so far are Congressman Bob Goodlatte; and US House Representatives John Rutherford, Mark Sandford, John Curtis, Todd Rokita, Richard Hudson, Steve Cohen, Scott Peters and Darrel Issa.
The group is scheduled to meet with President David Granger and his Ministers for a private meeting today.
