The president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, stated that the only way his Guyanese counterpart, Mohamed Irfaan Alí, has to resolve the territorial controversy over Guayana Esequiba, “is to return to negotiations within the framework of the Geneva Agreement of 1966.”
During the broadcast of the “Con Maduro+” program, the head of state responded to the defiant manner of Irfaan Ali, who said that in Guyana “they were ready to respond in any scenario with their allies.”
“Next Sunday, December 3, we are going to respond to all the provocations of the ExxonMobil company, the United States Southern Command and the president of Guyana with the popular vote. Massively and forcefully, we are going to respond, because Guayana Esequiba, historically, belongs to Venezuela,” he emphasized.
Finally, President Maduro recalled that Mohamed Irfaan Alí acts in an incongruent manner regarding the controversy over the Essequibo territory: “I notice him nervous and worried because he knows that he violates international law and the Geneva Agreement of 1966,” he said.
