The presidential commissioner for Foreign Relations, Julio Borges, condemned that Nicolás Maduro and his dictatorship have abandoned the fight for the Essequibo territory, in exchange for obtaining international political support from Guyana.
“Negligently, they never objected to Guyana’s oil concessions in our territorial waters and decided not to go to the ICJ to defend the rights of the nation,” Borges condemned in a message posted on Twitter.
The head of Legitimate Government’s diplomacy asserted that “the abandonment of the fight for the Essequibo by Maduro’s regime not only constitutes treason but also a crime against the future of all citizens.”
“Venezuelans, once democracy has been recovered together with the FANB, we will resume work to recover the Essequibo. The dictatorship has dedicated itself to deceiving important military sectors that are concerned about the claim and the defense of the Atlantic facade,” he said.
Finally, Borges indicated that the Legitimate Government and the National Assembly are preparing new actions to defend Venezuelan territory.
“Soon we will send a strong and very explanatory document to all the countries that are intervening in this matter. The National Assembly has had very clear actions in defense of the interests of the country and it will continue to do so,” he concluded.
Maduro abandonó el Esequibo a cambio de apoyo político internacional a su proyecto expansionista que ha desangrado las arcas de la República y arruinado a Venezuela.
