«The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela denounces and categorically rejects once again, the misrepresentations and manipulations derived from the speech exposed by the Cooperative Republic of Guyana in the framework of the 77th UN General Assembly on September 21, 2022.
In the aforementioned speech, the historical and fair position of Venezuela on the territorial dispute of our Guayana Esequiba, governed by the Geneva Agreement signed between the United Kingdom, Venezuela and Guyana, whose motivation is to reach a friendly negotiation on the immeasurable territory, is disrespected. tropical land made up of 160 thousand kilometers plagued by jungles, forests, savannahs, mangroves and water sources, in which a majority of native indigenous people live.
It is in this territory where the Cooperative Republic of Guyana intends to implant a transnational emporium that wishes to seize the riches of the sea, just as they have been doing abusively with the lands subject to friendly negotiation by legal mandate of this treaty signed to resolve the territorial dispute.
The persistent and false accusations that Guyana has been uttering since 2015 before the UN General Assembly, a year that coincides with the moment in which the oil transnationals decide to invade the undelimited waters, are unacceptable.
The United Kingdom seized Guiana Essequiba from Venezuela through fraud in 1889, many decades before the birth of Guyana as an independent state. The Cooperative Republic of Guyana must explain to the world that Venezuela, through diplomatic channels, managed to have this territorial dispossession recognized within this UN General Assembly in 1962, giving life in 1966 to the Geneva Agreement.
Venezuela does not promote the use of force, does not promote the imposition of the will of a single party, does not promote neo-colonialism, inequality and the violence of war, through financial, media, law fare or post-truth stratagems that they have destroyed countries and killed millions of human beings.
Venezuela expresses its indignation at seeing how the world is being lied to, when for decades it has been the best partner in cooperation, solidarity and integration.
Venezuela regrets that Guyana has been forging this interested and publicity matrix to facilitate the dispossession of Venezuela from the controversial territory, when the reality is that the Geneva Agreement ordered the Parties to reach a practical and mutually satisfactory settlement.
The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela works and has always worked to assert its legitimate rights and to establish direct negotiations brandishing the spirit of the Geneva Agreement and our peace diplomacy.
The Venezuelan sun rises from the Essequibo.
