According to a statement released by Guyana´s Foreign Ministry on Tuesday, March 2, two Venezuelan Sukhoi SU 30s fighter jets flew over Eteringbang community.
Based on this scenario, Caracas issued an official statement in which it blamed Guyana's authorities for 'manipulating the reality to feed a negative matrix against Venezuela' in relation to the territorial controversy over Essequibo.
Guyana is intending to generate fake versions of Venezuela´s regular air patrolling operations by the Bolivarian National Armed Forces.
the Venezuelan Government recalls that since there is a dispute over Guayana Esequiba, none of the parties can refer to this territory as its own, under its sovereignty and jurisdiction, as established in Article 5 of the 1966 Geneva Agreement.
It also reiterates the position in favor of resuming the spirit and the mechanisms for the search for a practical, peaceful and mutually satisfactory resolution of the territorial controversy.
Both South American nations claim sovereignty rights over the Guayana Esequiba region, over which the Georgetown Government filed a lawsuit before the International Court of Justice.
On several occasions, Venezuela rejected the Court’s decision to declare itself competent to hear the appeal presented by Guyana in relation to the dispute, and called for addressing the dispute through bilateral negotiations within the scope of the Geneva Agreement.
The Venezuelan authorities expressed their rejection of the intentions to grant validity to the Arbitration Award of 1899, by means of which 159 thousand square kilometers of territory west of the Essequibo River were granted to the control of the United Kingdom, the metropolis of the then colony of British Guiana.
