The Esequibo Conflict: Part 1736282
The United States is increasing its “urgent military aid” to Guyana, helping it purchase new aircraft, helicopters, military drones and – for the first time radar technology to “improve defense capabilities.”
The president of ExxonMobil Guyana, Alistair Routledge, said that Guyana’s “collaboration” with other countries “on the military and diplomatic front” is “a healthy thing” for the Western Hemisphere in the face of tensions with Venezuela.
Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodríguez rejected Routledge’s comments and said ExxonMobil “governs the high authorities” of Guyana. The Minister of Defense, Vladimir Padrino López, said that the Southern Command is the “private security company” of Exxon, which has “a small branch” in the Guyana government. He said that “they will receive a proportional, forceful and lawful response” in the disputed maritime space.
Although Venezuela has focused on ExxonMobil, it shares the Stabroek block in disputed waters with the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), which has 25% of it. Recently, CNOOC’s president said that Stabroek was its “highest quality overseas asset” and that its development is “in a location without any disputes.”
