See the full statement from the Office of the Prime Minister, Brigadier (ret’d) Mark Phillips:

I have been informed of misinformation circulating on social media suggesting the Lethem/Bomfin border crossing was reopened. These reports are patently false.

Despite Ministers of the Government of Guyana holding talks with the Governor of the State of Roraima on September 17, 2021, no agreement has been reached on the reopening of the border crossing. Therefore, the information in circulation is inaccurate and may be intended to create mischief.

I wish to assure residents of Region 9 and others who depend on the border crossing being opened for their livelihoods both parties on either side of the border remain fully engaged in bringing a resolution to the issue as soon as it is safe and reasonable to do so.
