“Yesterday’s meeting was largely what you will call a situational report and a commitment on the part of Guyana to remain engaged…We will continue to exchange views with the intention of bringing this matter to a successful closure,” Granger said.
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.
Moreover, Guyana has been co-operating fully with the Secretary-General’s Personal Representative, Norwegian Diplomat, Mr. Dag Nylander, who has been working closely with the Guyanese and Venezuelan Governments.
In his address to world leaders at the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly, Granger said that Guyana remains imperilled as a result of Venezuela’s claims to its territory.
“Guyana warns the world, through this Assembly, that peace will be at stake in our Region if justice does not become ascendant, not only within Venezuela, but also in respect to its border controversy with Guyana,” he said.
