Venezuela ratifies their legitimate rights over the territory Essequibo at the UN
From the UN headquarters in New York, Venezuela's Foreign Minister said: "Venezuela will deliver the country's official indictment, the comments, and the proposals to the document presented about the territorial dispute (...) We affirm Venezuela's legitimate rights regarding the Essequibo territory; it's a historical position and in that sense we are ready under the Geneva Agreement to carry out this territorial dispute through diplomatic channels by way of international law, and we have confirmed that with the director of the Secretary General."
February 17th marks the 50th anniversary of the Geneva Agreement, a document in which the United Kingdom, along with British Guiana (Guyana), recognize Venezuela's contention and dissatisfaction about the seizure of almost 160k km2 of territory, and that the Arbitral Award is null and void as a result of the maneuvers of British expansionism and the US Monroe doctrine.
Thanks to the actions of the Bolivarian Diplomacy of Peace, the Geneva Agreement has been reactivated, the legal basis governing everything related to the territorial dispute over the Guyana Essequibo territory of which Venezuela has legitimate rights and with this signature, an agreement is made to find a practical, peaceful and satisfactory solution for the parties.
"United Nations, now, in the 21st Century and for the third millennium, should focus all of its efforts, to the utmost, on moral, intellectual, scientific, social, cultural, economic and financial order, in the fight against the demons of hunger, poverty and death that scourge our planet."
"We will take with us to the UN a voice that repudiates terrorism and speaks out in favour of world peace; that respects the sovereignty of peoples and has the credit of the 181 countries who voted for us, not as an imperialist power that conquers peoples, but with our Bolivarian vision of peace and the right to exist."
"We must speak clearly and firmly on this point: during the United Nations’ 70 years of existence, the Palestinian people have faced a constant lack of respect for the most basic rights, and it is shameful that this organisation has known about the situation since it was founded and to date no political solution to the conflict has been reached"
"Venezuela will now, more than ever, be an active voice in the defence of the sovereign equality of nations; in particular of the inalienable rights of the peoples of the South to development and peace"
