[www.inewsguyana.com] – President David Granger is set to host his first press conference tomorrow October 2, since taking office as President on May 16.

This follows sharply on the heels of President Granger’s maiden address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York, on September 29.

It is expected that the president will officially brief the local media corps on several developments in his government since the APNU+AFC took office.

Of importance is the continued aggressions displayed towards Guyana by Venezuela.

President Granger returned from the U.S on Wednesday and immediately proceeded to the Ministry of the Presidency where he briefed staffers there on this trip to the UN General Assembly.

He used the platform at the UN to call for a system to be established to protect small states from the aggressions of larger countries.

He made specific reference to the ongoing Guyana/Venezuela border controversy.

“Guyana’s border with Venezuela was settled 116 years ago. The whole world, except the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, accepts our border,” the President stated adding “for fifty years Venezuela has promulgated spurious decrees claiming our territory, the most recent being on May 26th, 2015, our independence anniversary, when it issued Decree No. 1.787 with specified coordinates purporting to annex almost our entire maritime zone. That decree constituted a reassertion of its claim to five of Guyana’s ten regions.”
