[www.inewsguyana.com] – Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro will no longer be attending the CARICOM Heads of Government Summit, according to a report on Nation News website.
Maduro was expected to arrive on Friday, July 03 but it has been revealed that Vice President Jorge Arreaza will be attending instead, the report stated. No reason has been given for the change.
In his first address to CARICOM yesterday at Hilton Barbados, Guyana’s President David Granger begged his fellow leaders to strongly condemn the bullying tactics of Venezuela, which he said was parading its military might over one of the least populated and poorer countries in the region.
President Granger had also noted that he had received an invitation to attend a meeting with Maduro following the CARICOM meeting but would only do so if Venezuela withdraws the Presidential decree, which lay claims to Guyana’s oil rich waters.
