UNITED NATIONS — UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday urged Caribbean nations to combat organised crime on a regional level and promised United Nations assistance in the fight.

In a message to the heads of government of the 15-member Caribbean Community (CARICOM) meeting in St Kitts and Nevis, Ban said a “challenge for Caribbean countries is the growing threat posed by organized transnational crime and the proliferation of small arms and light weapons.”

“We must consider this challenge in a regional context, as well as through the prisms of development, human rights, rule of law and security reform,” he said. “The United Nations system stands ready to work with you on these issues.”
