Venezuelan Minister of Foreign Affairs has plans to visit Ecuador this week to tighten bilateral ties, Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño twitted on Monday, Efe quoted.

Last January 18, Jaua, the Venezuelan ex Vice-President, welcomed Patiño in Caracas. On that occasion, Jaua also met with his Colombian counterpart María Ángela Holguín.

Holguín and Patiño visited Jaua to emphasize their support in view of the illness suffered by Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, who prevented him from being sworn-in for a new term in office beginning January 10.

The adjournment was endorsed by the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) in a controversial ruling.

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.
