Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro arrived on Monday in Amazonas state to meet with his Colombian counterpart Juan Manuel Santos, for the first time as the Venezuelan Head of State.

The meeting is expected to take place at the Army Brigade number 7, in Puerto Ayacucho, the capital city of Amazonas state, south Venezuela. It was initially slated for 1:00 pm. Nevertheless, President Santos had not appeared yet.

Fully reestablishment of bilateral relations is top in the agenda. A couple of months ago, Venezuelan-Colombian ties were at stake after Santos met with Henrique Capriles Radonski, the Venezuelan opposition leader and ex presidential candidate who contested the results of the election for president.

In any case, Venezuelan authorities have expressed their willingness to get the relations back to normal. For his part, Santos cherishes to "set clear rules of the game."

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.
