By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On November 25, 2022, Prime Minister John Briceño and President Nicolás Maduro held talks at Miraflores Palace, the President’s official residence in Caracas, Venezuela.

The leaders signed a Joint Declaration in which they committed to strengthening the close bonds of friendship and solidarity between their countries and respective peoples.

Both leaders committed to work together to conclude agreements for cooperation in trade, energy, tourism, communications, air connectivity, education, culture and housing. It was agreed that a Mixed Commission would soon begin work to advance this broad bilateral agenda.

President Maduro announced that Petrocaribe was being renewed and expanded to cover products, in addition to petroleum, and that Belize would continue to be one of the beneficiaries.

Prime Minister Briceño recognised the efforts of Comandante Hugo Chavez for engineering the innovative Petrocaribe initiative which has benefitted Belize and many other countries in the Americas and welcomed an early resumption of the program for Belize.

PM Briceño and President Maduro acknowledged the need to work together to strengthen regional cooperation through CARICOM and CELAC, and reiterated their call to maintain the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace.

In the joint statement, Belize and Venezuela reaffirmed their respect for the Charter of the United Nations, international law and the Bandung Principles which guide the Non-Aligned Movement. 

“The meeting included important negotiations on the debts owed by Belize to Venezuela on which a new agreement was reached that brings substantial benefits to both countries. The leaders instructed their experts to promptly finalise the details of the new accord,” the Government of Belize informed.
