Venezuela's National Assembly Deputy Edgar Zambrano, the leader of the parliamentary fraction of opposition party Acción Democrática (AD), has held a meeting with Apostolic Nuncio to Venezuela Monsignor Pietro Parolin as part of the number of meetings and talks in favor of the freedom of prisoners and the return of people involuntarily living in exile.
The deputy, who currently coordinates the team in charge of dealing with this issue, expressed his satisfaction at the outcome of the meeting with the Apostolic Nuncio, who pledged to pray for the success of the initiative aimed at the reconciliation of Venezuelans. "The Nuncio expressed being delighted by this humanitarian action and informed us that he will be spiritually supporting its progress by praying for its success," he remarked.
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.
