Hugh Todd, Guyana’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation met with Moses Chavez, Chargé d’ Affaires, Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

Todd met with the official to register the strong objection of the Government of Guyana over events that are developing in Caracas related to the attempts by Venezuela to assume jurisdiction over marine and submarine areas.

The meeting follows a decree made by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, unilaterally laying claim to a section of the Essequibo.

Guyana’s President, Irfaan Ali subsequently rejected the decree, saying that it violated international principles.
