International News: Brazil deploys troops to border with Venezuela 

Posted: Thursday, December 7, 2023. 10:49 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Brazil has announced that it will deploy troops along its border with Venezuela after the Venezuelan government announced plans to incorporate an area controlled by Guyana into its territory.

According to the BBC, the oil-rich Essequibo region has been in dispute since the 19th Century when Guyana was a British colony.

A few years ago, when offshore oil and gas reserves were discovered, Venezuela renewed its claim.

On Sunday, a referendum was held in Venezuela where over 95% of voters are said to have supported the government’s claim to Essequibo.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has since asked the state oil company to issue extraction licenses there and proposed that the National Assembly pass a bill to make the area part of Venezuela.

Meanwhile, Guyana also has its troops on high alert and the Brazilian army is moving more soldiers to border city Boa Vista.
