In his recent interview on Venezuela, former president Mr. Bharrat Jagdeo spoke about his administration’s approach to resolving the border controversy between Guyana and Venezuela. He said that the PPP administration had considered five options for resolving it but he mentioned only one, namely, an outlet to the Atlantic for Venezuela.

Mr. Jadgeo questioned the ‘juridical’ route being proposed by the government on the ground that it may not materialize because of the need for Venezuela’s consent. In addition, he warned that if the parties accepted a judicial solution, the involvement of the United Nations in the process might somehow be impaired. He urged that Guyana ought not to take a position that would have such a consequence because it was vital, in his view, that the Secretary General should remain involved in the process.  Continue reading

Guyana and Venezuela Thursday night agreed that they would within four months begin groundwork for the start of negotiations for the delimitation of their maritime boundary, in the wake of last week’s arrest of a seismic research ship by the Venezuelan navy.

Foreign Minister, Carolyn Rodrigues-Birkett said that during the six-hour meeting in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad with her delegation and one headed by Venezuela’s Foreign Relations Minister, Elías Jaua the two countries held on to their position that the Research Vessel Teknik Perdana was in each other’s waters when it was intercepted and arrested last week Thursday.

“In this regard, Ministers Rodrigues-Birkett and Jaua agreed to explore mechanisms within the context of international law to address the issue of maritime delimitation. To this end, they agreed that a technical team would meet within four months to exchange views on how such delimitation could proceed,” the two delegations said in a statement.    Continue reading
