The leader of Guyana – according to the statement – has shown behavior contrary to the commitments assumed in the 1966 Geneva Agreement.
The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela issued a statement to reject the “war declarations” issued by Guyanese President Irfaan Ali and called, once again, for diplomatic dialogue.
Foreign Minister Yván Gil Venezuela shared the message through his social media account after “a media show held on Friday, October 27, in the territory of Guayana Esequiba.”

“Following the instructions from the United States Southern Command, which gave him the order to intensify his actions, President Ali showed conduct contrary to the commitments assumed in the 1966 Geneva Agreement, which defined the route to be followed to resolve the territorial dispute between Guyana and Venezuela,” the statement continued.
In addition, the Venezuelan government criticized once again the purchase of the entire leadership of Guyana by ExxonMobil, which “planned plans to threaten and attack the Venezuelan people, and steal the resources that belong to them.”
Once again, Venezuela urged Guyana to abandon the war race, engage in diplomatic dialogue and abandon legal actions contrary to the Geneva Agreement.
