Panamanian political sectors condemned the statements made by Panamanian Ambassador Guillermo Cochez at a meeting held at the Organization of American States (OAS). They claimed that Cochez should present his resignation for having criticized Venezuela at the meeting without any authorization whatsoever. 

During the meeting at the OAS, Cochez remarked that OAS' Secretary General hastily endorsed the situation facing Venezuela, EFE reported.  

In no time, the Panamanian Government condemned the statements issued by Cochez, who additionally requested the OAS not to ignore the "potential violation" of the Venezuelan Constitution amid the political situation of the country. 

Former Panamanian Foreign Minister Jorge Eduardo Ritter said on Thursday that Cochez had acted as if he were a representative of the Venezuelan opposition. Ritter also praised the prompt action of Panamanian Foreign Minister Rómulo Roux in confirming the stance of Panama with respect to the Venezuelan situation.

The former minister also called for the resignation of Cochez "on the basis of dignity and, most of all, ethical sense."

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.
