[www.inewsguyana.com] – Guyana’s President, David Granger is expected to participate in a meeting with Venezuela’s President, Nicolas Maduro on Sunday, September 27 in New York, which will be facilitated by the United Nations.
iNews has been able to confirm that the meeting will be held at the office of Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki Moon at 19:00 hrs. Tension escalated between the two nations when Venezuela deployed its military personnel and equipment close to Guyana’s borders on September 20.

Maduro recently revealed that he is interested in a “one on one” talk with the Guyanese Head of State, who has since noted that he too is interested in meeting with his Venezuelan counterpart.
In the meantime, the Guyana Defense Force has placed its soldiers on high alert and to be ready for any eventuality.
