New York, Feb. 21, 2009 The UAE and St. Vincent and the Grenadines signed a
joint statement to officially establish diplomatic ties between the two countries at

Jarman, signed the statement for his country, while his counterpart from St. Vincent
and the Grenadines, Camillo Gonsalves, also signed for his country during a short

the ceremony.

The joint statement, which was placed at the UN Headquarters in Arabic and

understanding and strengthening relations of friendship and cooperation between
them on the basis of the principles and objectives of the UN Charter, international
law and treaties, particularly those related to boosting international peace and

at ambassadorial level, in accordance with the April 18, 1961 Vienna Convention
on diplomatic relations, with effect from the day of signing the agreement.
