Guyana: UN Security Council could intervene-Min Greenidge tells House of Venezuela’s attempt to land chopper on Exxon vessel

IN further condemning Venezuela’s use of threat and force to impede Guyana’s exercise of its sovereign rights, Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge disclosed in the National Assembly that the Venezuelan Navy attempted to land a helicopter on a seismic ship operating in this country’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

“A reckless attempt was made by the Venezuelans to land a helicopter on the deck of one of them– the Ramform Tethys,” the Foreign Affairs Minister told the House on Thursday as he briefed members on the interception of a seismic vessel by the Venezuelan Navy. He explained that December 22, 2018, his ministry received a report from Esso Exploration & Production Guyana Limited (Exxon Mobil) that vessels contracted to perform exploratory seismic work within the Stabroek block on its behalf were intercepted. The incident occurred at 10:30hrs.
