St. Maarten – On a mostly sunny and warm day, the French and the Dutch side of the island joined in the celebration of St. Maarten Day at the border monument in Belle Plaine / Belvedere. The celebration marked the 520th year since the island was discovered by Christopher Columbus. As the pictures show, yesterday was an occasion to celebrate the friendship and the peaceful coexistence of the two countries. COM-President Alain Richardson and Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams even sealed that friendship in front of the cameras with a firm hug. See next story
