Maduro will meet with the President of Guyana, whose territory he annexed

Venezuela said the meeting would strengthen “the desire to maintain Latin America and the Caribbean as a zone of peace.”

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and Guyanese President Mohamed Irfaan Ali will meet next week amid a territorial dispute between the two countries. This was reported by Reuters on Sunday, November 10, citing a letter from the Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Ralph Gonsalves.

The announcement of the bilateral meeting came after Maduro held talks with Goncalves, who is also interim president of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), as well as UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

Tensions between Venezuela and Guyana have risen in recent weeks over a long-running border dispute in the Esequibo, an area in Guyana where major offshore oil and gas discoveries have been made.

The Venezuelan government said the meeting will “reinforce our commitment to maintaining Latin America and the Caribbean as a zone of peace.”

The Office of the Guyanese President confirmed that Ali agreed to the meeting, but added that the country’s land borders were not discussed.

Let’s remember that on December 6, Maduro officially declared Venezuela’s 24th state to be part of neighboring Guyana Esequibo.

As reported, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry responded to the referendum in Venezuela on the annexation of part of Guyana, citing the need for Venezuela to comply with the legally binding decisions of the International Court of Justice and to refrain from any specific actions which could change the status quo in the Essequibo region.
