Dear Editor,The following is an open letter to Andrew Holness, prime minister of Jamaica:

I am a Jamaican by birth residing in Jamaica. It is my deep regret that the Jamaican representative at the Caricom and Organisation of American States level voted for an anti-President Nicolas Madura resolution on April 3, 2017.

I hope that our representative is not considering supporting the same type of resolution at today's Caricom meeting in Barbados against the wish of most Jamaicans and the peace-seeking Government and people of Venezuela.

It is known that the Venezuelan Government is democratically elected for five years, and it is a sovereign country with a constitution and has the fourth-largest oil resources in the world. It is known and appreciated that this oil resource under the Bolivarian Government control has greatly benefited Jamaica's economy in recent times via the PetroCaribe agreement.

I, on behalf of many Jamaicans, beg that the Jamaican representative vote for the peaceful existence of the present Government of Venezuela as a friend in need and deed.

Paul Works
