"It has been a wonderful coming together of cultures, recognising how Indians came to Jamaica 75 years back, became a part of the society, a multicultural society," she told ANI.

In a further statement, "An MoU has been signed between Sushma Swaraj Institute of Foreign Service and Ministry Of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade of Jamaica both by our permanent secretaries just two days ago, looking forward to training persons in diplomatic services and looking forward to increased technical co-operation between the two nations", the senator told to ANI.
