The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela rejects the Communiqué issued by the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) dated May 29, 2024, on the conclusion of the 27th Meeting of the Council on Foreign and Community Relations (COFCOR), in particular regarding the Controversy Guyana-Venezuela, which seeks to promote the malicious and distorted matrix of presenting Venezuela as an aggressor nation.

The Government of Venezuela regrets the biased position of CARICOM and reminds this organization of the continuous warlike actions promoted by the Cooperative Republic of Guyana, by forging alliances with military and intelligence entities such as the Southern Command and the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States. United States of America, which not only point to the preparation of aggression against our country, but also constitute a flagrant violation of the agreements established in the Argyle Joint Declaration for Dialogue and Peace between Guyana and Venezuela, signed in San Vincent and the Grenadines, on December 14, 2023, in which it was agreed, among other things, that both countries would not threaten or use force against each other.

The history of visits to Guyana by senior US officials specialized in areas, both military and security and intelligence, is a trend that has deepened in recent months. During these visits, interventionist statements have been made and threats have been made against Venezuela, which is conclusive evidence of the dangers that the US war machinery looms over the Caribbean region, with the consent of the Government of Guyana.

Guyana, by ceding its sovereignty to the North American power and the voracious desire of Exxon Mobil, unfortunately promotes regional instability, in addition to threatening the Zone of Peace that represents Latin America and the Caribbean, as established by the Community of Latin American States and Caribbean (CELAC).

As has been denounced by Venezuela, Guyana unilaterally and in contravention of international law, has granted and continues to grant oil exploitation licenses in maritime spaces pending delimitation with Venezuela, which has become the greatest threat to regional security and peace. .

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela urges Guyana not to deviate down the path of confrontation and to comply with the only possible path for a practical and satisfactory solution to the controversy over Guayana Esequiba, which is none other than the process of direct dialogue, established in the Geneva Agreement of 1966, the only binding instrument for both parties.
