Venezuela's entry into UN Human Rights Council is a "gibe," NGO says

Patricia Andrade, the director of Venezuela Awareness, maintained in a press release that Venezuela will use its new status "to attack the countries regarded as its enemies"

NGO Venezuela Awareness regrets that Venezuela has taken a seat at the UN Human Rights Council, "considering its double standard, since it fails to respect or make reforms intended to meet the minimal requirements as a country that observes human rights. On the contrary, it furthers deteriorates and violates human rights as it pleases."

The human rights advocate based in Miami labeled as "gibe" the election of Venezuela. "In order to take on the position to which it was elected today (Monday), Venezuela should be stricter in terms of respect of human rights. Therefore, today's election can be just seen as a gibe. Any presentation to be made by Venezuela in its incumbency at the UN Human Rights Council is not at all trustworthy."

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.
