This Wednesday Ali met with the opposition in Guyana and called to “resist” Venezuela’s “efforts” to “undermine” its sovereignty.
Through a new statement, Venezuela rejected the statements made by the president of Guyana this Wednesday, after a meeting with the opposition sectors of that country.
Foreign Minister Yván Gil published the letter in which they considered that Irfaan Ali, the Guyanese president, “interfered in matters that are the sole responsibility of the Venezuelan people, when referring to the Consultative Referendum called by the National Assembly of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela for “Next December 3.”
They pointed out that Ali refused to dialogue with Venezuela as mandated by the 1966 Geneva Agreement, due to the territorial dispute in Guayana Esequiba.
“Furthermore, it continues its illegal, abusive and arbitrary behavior with a territorial sea waiting to be delimited. “This behavior threatens the stability of the region, which is promoted by the hardline association of Guyana in the interests of the Southern Command of the United States,” they added.
They continued that “the call for popular consultation in Venezuela responds to the full use of Bolivarian democracy, in accordance with the law and with the aim of guiding the actions of all bodies of public power, to protect the principles as set forth in the Constitution and the laws of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
Because of this, they asked Guyanese leaders to “leave ExxonMobil and the Southern Command” and sit down to talk with Venezuela.
This Wednesday Ali met with the opposition in Guyana and called “resistance” to the “efforts” of Venezuela to “undermine” its sovereignty, after Caracas called a referendum to nationalize the inhabitants of the territory of Essequibo, which was disputed between the two.
The parties “condemn Venezuela’s flagrant violation of the rule of law and agree that no effort will be spared in resisting the country’s continued efforts to undermine the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Guyana,” read the statement they released.
The Guyanese president, Mohamed Irfaan Ali, and the leader of the opposition, Aubrey C. Norton, also agreed that the “protection” of the territory should be “supported by a strong and comprehensive public relations program and a active and strong diplomatic efforts intended. to mitigate Venezuelan propaganda and disinformation.”
