Caribbean Democrat Union (CDU) resolves to support Guyana over boundary issue with Venezuela

Posted: Saturday, December 9, 2023. 11:54 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: In a resolution tabled at the Executive Meeting of the Caribbean Democrat Union (CDU), an alliance of center-right and conservative parties that is part of the wider International Democrat Union (IDU) and of which Belize’s United Democratic Party (UDP) is a member, the CDU calls on the Caribbean Community to condemn efforts by Venezuela to annex the Essequibo region of Guyana.

The CDU called the recent referendum undertaken by Venezuela and its subsequent actions as of “deep concern” and “a direct threat to the Sovereignty of Guyana and are an affront to the peace and political stability of CARICOM,” while calling the referendum itself “unconstitutional.”

The CDU said the region must stand together to condemn threats by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro to act on the referendum results and annex the region, which covers nearly three-quarters of Guyanese territory.

“The CDU further calls on CARICOM and the International Community to engage in discussions to determine a diplomatic solution with haste and to respect the authority of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on this longstanding dispute,” the statement ends. The ICJ did not speak directly to the referendum itself but warned Venezuela not to take any action that would undermine Guyana’s sovereignty in the region.
