and recognized boundaries between the two states.

He said, “This decree is mischievous, illegal, and can only serve to foment tensions on an issue that is being peaceably resolved in the International Court of Justice (ICJ). Being a Member State of the United Nations, Venezuela is bound by the jurisdiction and rulings of the ICJ.”

Joseph added, “The APNU+AFC Coalition recalls a similar decree, No. 1787, that was issued on May 26, 2015, which sought to unilaterally re-draw centuries-old land and sea boundaries and lay claim to the hydrocarbon resources in the ‘Liza’ field.”

He also pointed that the then Government, led by President David Granger, stoutly and condignly condemned the move as a political stunt and took appropriate measures, diplomatic and otherwise, to forcibly remind the Venezuelan government that Guyana’s borders and sovereignty were sacrosanct. Not long after, the decree was withdrawn following the pressure that was brought to bear.

Leader of opposition noted,” Today, five years later, Venezuela seeks to repeat the same misadventure. We urge Venezuela to utilize the ICJ as the forum to present its case and to cease and desist from issuing these arbitrary decrees.”

The APNU+AFC Coalition stands resolute and in solidarity with any reasonable action that the people of Guyana is likely to embark on to safeguard
Guyana’s sovereignty.

In the conclusion of his statement, he said,” May God bless and protect the Cooperative Republic of Guyana and its people.

The people of Guyana praises his statement and support his will towards the country.
