Reply to "Reported halt in rice trade with Venezuela … RPA stands by Gov’t – to work in best interest of rice farmers"

In rejecting Venezuela’s claim to Guyana’s waters as defence zones, President Granger contended that the decree “goes on further to state that these defence zones are spaces created to plan and execute integral defence operations.”

 

“We consider decree 1787 as constituting an act of aggression against Guyana,” President Granger noted. The Head of State recalled his recent trip to Barbados for the 36th CARICOM Heads of Government meeting, and a recent visit to Guyana, where Commonwealth Secretary General Kamalesh Sharma expressed solidarity with Guyana from the 53-nation Commonwealth.
