The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is the ministry responsible for handling the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis' external relations and its diplomatic missions abroad. [1] The ministry's current director is Minister of Foreign Affairs and Education, Sam Condor, who also acts as the country's Deputy Prime Minister and as a member of the Kittitian Parliament.[2][3]

Diplomacy[edit]

Although Saint Kitts and Nevis maintains formal and friendly ties with many of its neighbors and major regional and world powers, countries such as the United States do not have permanent representatives on the islands. The U.S. State Department, for example, has ambassadors and consular staff present in nearby Barbados and Antigua.[2]
