Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar has arrived in New York on a private visit.

A media release from the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) Friday said Persad-Bissessar is making this visit "to be at the bedside of her eldest sister, Sally, who has encountered a serious medical situation and is in hospital requiring surgery."

It added, "The Prime Minister is taking the time off on compassionate grounds to be close to her sister at a time of great need."

The OPM said Labour Minister Errol Mc Leod would act as Prime Minister while Persad-Bissessar is away.
