Why should Guyana trust Suriname?

Suriname is also still perceived as an export platform for illegal narcotics to Europe. Surinamese drug cartels are suspected of having negotiated with Colombia’s terrorist rebel movement – the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia – in guns-for-drugs transactions. Narcotics-trafficking and everyday contraband-smuggling would likely continue or increase and other crimes could go unpunished. The free movement of persons that will be facilitated by the fact that Suriname is a member of CARICOM and, therefore, the Caribbean Single Market and Economy, could put the Guyana-Suriname border on the Corentyne River further under stress.
