Jefe Militar de Guyana advierte a Venezuela: “No nos quedaremos de brazos cruzados ante cualquier incursión ilegal”

Mark Phillips, jefe del Estado Mayor de las Fuerzas de Defensa de Guyana (FDG), ha dicho que no se quedarán de brazos cruzados y permitir cualquier incursión ilegal en su país, reseña el portal “I News Guyana” en una nota firmada por Leroy Smith.

Phillips comentó que cualquier pretensión sobre el Esequibo es ilegal. Según él, el fallo de 1899 a favor de Guyana es vinculante y todavía sigue siendo legal.

Al ser preguntado específicamente sobre la capacidad de Defender a Guyana si la controversia con Venezuela sale de control, el brigadier dejó claro que la naturaleza de la FDG es la defensa de Guyana y eso está en la mentalidad de los hombres y mujeres que sirven en el ejército.

Ambos países se reclaman mutuamente la soberanía sobre ciertos territorios, en su mayoría muy ricos en petróleo y otros recursos naturales.

[www.inewsguyana.com] – Chief of Staff of the Guyana Defense Force, Brigadier Mark Phillips has firmly stated that the GDF will not sit idly by and allow any illegal incursion of the country’s territory.

Brigadier Phillips, in an invited comment to iNews, spoke specifically about the latest position of Venezuelan President, Nicholas Maduro who signed a decree claiming Guyana’s oil rich waters – a move that was sternly rejected by the Guyana government.

The Chief of Staff is of the view that any claim to Essequibo is illegal and it must not be entertained by Guyanese, Venezuelan or international body. According to the Brigadier, the 1899 ruling in Guyana’s favour is binding and still remains legal and more so an international law that has to be honored.

Asked specifically about the ability to defend Guyana should the controversy spiral out of control, Brigadier Phillips made it clear that the nature of the GDF is to defend Guyana and it is in the psyche of the men and women who serve in the army.venezuela 2

He dismissed reports of lack of man power and resources, maintaining that Guyana is ready and capable to address any invasion.

Last year, heavily armed soldiers from Venezuela were found in Guyana at an area in Essequibo where they were reportedly providing protection to a group of Venezuelans who travelled by boat into Guyana and were conducting some form of survey in the same disputed area.
