Democrat Senator John Kerry, nominated by US President Barack Obama as the new US Secretary of State, cherished on Thursday the chance of transition in Venezuela and put Colombia as an example of the intended relationship with all Latin American nations.

"Depending on what will happen in Venezuela, there could be a real opportunity of transition there," said Kerry in his hearing of confirmation for his position, where he also expressed confidence in renewed US relations with Ecuador and Bolivia, Efe cited.

There is "an opportunity looking at our face" in US-Latin American relations, Kerry reckoned. The Senator also expects the United States to "improve and making a greater effort" in the region during his incumbency as the next Secretary of State.

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.
