Remain Calm says Johnson-Smith
Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Kamina Johnson Smith says Jamaicans should remain calm despite tension over the new executive orders signed by President Donald Trump.
The orders one of which bans travellers from seven Muslim-dominated countries has caused many persons across the world to be concerned.
Minister Johnson Smith says it is unhelpful that people are inciting panic on matters that are very complex and very technical and subject to a lot of uncertainty even in the issuing state. She says the Ministry is making every effort to ascertain the scope of the orders and it is important that one does not conflate them,considering that there is more than one order and they deal with entirely different things.
Johnson Smith said the Jamaican government is examining these issues and noted that the ministry is in contact with the US Embassy here and the State Department overseas through Jamaican missions.
