Opposition MP Bradley Felix believes that the United States should respect Jamaica’s position on same-sex unions amid reports that Washington planned to post a diplomat involved in a same-sex marriage in Kingston.

Jamaican laws do not recognise same-sex couples.

But Jamaica Observer quoted the country’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Kamina Johnson Smith, dismissing media reports of a row with the United States over the issue.

Choiseul MP Bradley Felix noted that the United States and many other countries have been quite liberal regarding same-sex marriages.
