Venezuelan FM rules out problems with the US to reappoint ambassadors
Venezuela-US diplomatic relation is at a standstill. Both countries recalled their ambassadors in 2010. Venezuelan Foreign Minister and Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro said that Hugo Chávez's Government advocates equity-based relations among States and condemns "interventionism in domestic affairs"
Maduro's comments came in an interview with state-run television channel Venezolana de Televisión (VTV). He stressed that Hugo Chávez's Government advocates equity-based relations among States and condemns "interventionism in domestic affairs."
Venezuela-US diplomatic relation is at a standstill despite the fact that Caracas sells nearly one million oil barrels per day to Washington. Both countries recalled their ambassadors in 2010.
US President Barack Obama has said that Venezuela is not a threat despite its ties with Iran.

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.
