United States President Donald Trump has vowed on Friday to invest during a meeting with the Caribbean leaders who supported Washington in backing self-proclaimed interim Venezuelan President Juan Guaido, the White House has reported.

According to Reuters news reports, Trump held a meeting with five Caribbean leaders from Saint Lucia, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Haiti and Bahamas in Florida at his private club in Palm Beach.

The White House said Trump pledged that a top-level delegation team from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation would visit their nations within the next 90 days.

After the meeting, Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness told reporters: “It’s absolutely important that it’s not just talking – that there will be a real investment.”

These nations have broken from the other members of the Caribbean Community, called as CARICOM, in support to Guaido. The organization has officially facilitated dialogues between Guaido and embattled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

The Caribbean has long relied upon Venezuelan oil and gas, which has offered cheap costing through Petrocaribe program, though the shipments have declined in recent years because of production problems at Venezuela’s state-owned oil company PDVSA.

Earlier this week, the White House has said Trump wants to work with the leaders to “counter China’s predatory economic practices”.
