Venezuela establishes High Commission in Defense of Guayana Esequiba

Caracas, Dec 12 (Prensa Latina) The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, established the High Commission for the Defense of Guayana Esequiba with the objective of addressing all development plans for the territory.

The work team, chaired by Executive Vice President Delcy Rodríguez, is composed by the Defense Council, the Federal Government Council, the National Security Council, the five powers of the State, some governors and mayors, indigenous communities and spokespersons for the Communes.

Rodríguez pointed out in statements that the group will carry out the “widest consultations” at the national level with all sectors that develop policies in the economic, political, social, cultural and national academies.

The Commission’s strategic objective will be to continue with the broadest consultations to consolidate the mandate of the people on December 3, in the defense of the 1966 Geneva Agreement as the only instrument that will allow a peaceful, political and practical solution for the parties, as she explained.

Rodríguez pointed out that this was one of the most important triggers of the referendum, in which 10.5 million people participated “for the defense of our seas in accordance with International Law.”

The public discussion of the Organic Law for the Defense of Essequibo continued this Monday throughout the country. The law was approved unanimously last week in thea first discussion in the National Assembly and will be endorsed in the coming days.
