Guyana, Venezuela at odds


Maduro to address Essequibo border dispute next week

GOVERNMENT Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro will attend the plenary meeting of the National Assembly (AN) next week "in defense of sovereignty" to address the situation of the Essequibo, a territory in dispute with Guyana, vis-à-vis the operations of oil company ExxonMobil in disputed waters.

President Maduro rejects companies' ambitions in the Essequibo

BORDER DISPUTE Showing some maps he described as "original from the 19th century" showing the Venezuelan territory, including the Essequibo, President Nicolás Maduro rejected alleged ambitions from international companies to take over Venezuela's territories.

Exxon Mobil is there with Guyana's consent, expert says

BORDER DISPUTE William Castillo, the director of the National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel), encouraged Venezuelan media to disseminate the map of Venezuela including the territory under dispute with Guyana.

This is all there is

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
