[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana government says it is concerned about the “unannounced an unexplained build-up” of military personnel and equipment from Venezuela close to Guyana’s border and waters.
In a statement issued late on Tuesday night (September 22), the APNU+AFC government said that it is closely monitoring this development and is urging Guyanese citizens close to the border with Venezuela “to be alert to this development and are further urged to remain within the boundaries of Guyana.”
According to the statement, “Guyanese in other communities are requested to remain calm as the Government of Guyana continues to monitor this situation and will provide updates if and when it becomes necessary.”
“Guyana remains committed to that principle and would regard any act that is not consistent with that principle as a breach of international law that will result in serious consequences.”
Additionally, Guyanese are urged to only utilize legal ports of entry in and out of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela if they must travel to or from that neighbouring State.
