Prime Minister Harris availed himself of the opportunity to renew the assurances of his highest esteem and consideration, and extended on behalf of the Government and people of St. Kitts and Nevis best wishes, prosperity, good health and peace, to Prime Minister Minnis and the people of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas.
