José Ramón Sánchez, deputy to the Latin American Parliament for opposition coalition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) alerted that in the 26th Summit of the Caribbean Community (Caricom), held in Bahamas on February 26, its Member States reached an agreement to support Guyana's stance regarding the Essequibo border dispute with Venezuela.

"How come, after all these years, being (Venezuela) a distributor of so many resources through the Petrocaribe model, the Caricom still regards the Essequibo as Guyana's territory, without taking into consideration the sovereignty of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela."

Sánchez demanded Maduro's government to appoint a full-time negotiator to address the issue of Guyana forcefully to protect the disputed area, whose natural wealth and biodiversity is so abundant that it has not been quantified scientifically for certain.
