I guess the question that would come to mind after Aruban Prime Minister made the following comment, “Aruba does not want independence; we cannot handle that. Aruba wants financial independence and no supervision from the Netherlands,” is what else can’t Aruba handle? What else should they be allowing others to handle, yet they refuse to let more experienced and qualified individuals to help? Why does it always in Aruba seem to be about the money?
Amigoe; June 17, 2007: The Netherlands forces Aruba to matters she doesn’t want to
ORANJESTAD – “There is no war between the two countries of the Kingdom, but it can be better”, says the Aruban Prime Minister Nelson Oduber (MEP).
He says that the Netherlands seizes the drastic political changes for the Antillean islands to force Aruba to matters she doesn’t want to. According to him, there is a chance that achievements are reversed, because also St, Maarten and Curacao won’t get these with the new political structure and the Netherlands is striving to be univocal.
” Aruba does not want independence; we cannot handle that. Aruba wants financial independence and no supervision from the Netherlands . Aruba wants to work together with the other islands in certain fields, like justice, criminality, and safety.”
Last week during his visit to The Hague , Oduber wanted to talk to the Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende in order to come to a good relationship. But that was not possible and the Aruban premier was also not admitted to the Federal Council of Ministers.
