SAO PAULO (Reuters) - President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said on Wednesday he wanted Brazil to resume having a diplomatic presence in Caribbean countries.

Lula made his remarks at the regional Caribbean Community summit in Guyana's capital, Georgetown.

The leftist leader said Brazil would make a contribution this year to the Caribbean Development Bank and that one of his country's policy priorities was "the connection between Brazil, Guyana, Suriname and Venezuela."
