President Maduro reiterated the willingness to peacefully resolve Essequibo's territorial dispute with Guyana under Geneva's 1966 Agreement.
Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro Thursday signed a presidential decree setting the country's maritime and territorial borders in order to protect national jurisdiction rights, especially on the disputed Essequibo territory.
He informed that the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was notified about his government rejections over the recent International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruling on the territorial dispute.
Maduro noted that transnational oil companies laid behind ICJ's decision in order to take over the Atlantic coast to steal the oil that belongs to his nation.
A call to settle the dispute amicably with Guyana's government was also reiterated, while public powers were ordered to support a national consultation process to instruct citizens.
