With Guyana’s Former Foreign Minister

Looking through memory lane I came across a photo of me in 2010 with Guyana’s former Minister of Foreign Affairs (2001-2008) and Permanent Representative to the UN since 1987, Ambassador Rudy Insanally. Ambassador Insanally was President of the 48th Session of the UN General Assembly (1993-1994) and served an illustrious diplomatic career as Guyana’s Ambassador to Venezuela, Columbia, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Austria, and JapanĀ  among other distinguished assignments. He was awarded the Order of the Rising Son, Grand Cordon by the Japanese Government in 2009, becoming the first Caribbean national to receive this award. He was Guyana’s Ambassador to Japan in 1992. Here we are together in his home where he proudly displayed his award. It was an honor to meet him and work with the then Foreign Minister of Guyana as well as interact with other former Foreign Ministers. Guyana afforded me the opportunity to meet and interact with the President and Prime Minister and introduce me to other distinguished members of the Caribbean community.
