Guyana’s President David Granger has reiterated the Government’s commitment to the course of action outlined by former United Nations (UN) Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon regarding the Guyana-Venezuela controversy.
Granger, in an interview in New York, made this clear during his meeting with Secretary-General, António Guterres on Monday.
According to Granger, the engagement with Guterres offered an opportunity to seek clarification and to be updated on the progress that has already been made.
Before demitting office last year, the former secretary-general in his assessment on the way forward, declared that the matter will be referred to the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) if significant progress is not made by the end of 2017.
In his address to world leaders at the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly, Granger said that Guyana remains imperiled as a result of Venezuela’s claims to its territory.
