The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, affirmed this Thursday that “sooner than later” the Caribbean country will triumph in the territorial dispute that it maintains with Guyana over the Essequibo region before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague.
“I want to congratulate the diplomatic, legal team, and historians of Venezuela who have given the battle for our Essequibo. Sooner rather than later, that battle will have as its destination the victory of the legal and territorial rights of Venezuela over the Essequibo,” the president said in a televised act.
