CARICOM URGES VENEZUELA TO RELEASE GUYANESE BOATS AND CREW

The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) yesterday expressed  grave concern at the escalation of tensions between Guyana and Venezuela caused by the interception and detention in Guyana’s Exclusive Economic Zone of two Guyanese fishing vessels by a Venezuelan naval vessel on January 21, 2021.

Recalling its statement of January 12, 2021 in which it had firmly repudiated any acts of aggression by Venezuela against Guyana, CARICOM called on the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to “respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Guyana and to desist from aggressive acts that will seriously undermine the peace and security not only of Guyana and Venezuela but the entire Caribbean region”.

CARICOM called for the immediate release of the crew members and vessels.
