Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has on numerous occasions claimed sovereignty over Guyana Esequiba, which comprises about two-thirds of Guyana's territory, by "historical right."

In the opinion of the Venezuelan Government, with his statements, the OAS secretary has placed himself "on the margins of international legality, seeking to generate an unprecedented crisis in the Caribbean", an attempt that, he assured, "will succumb."

The vice president of Venezuela, Delcy Rodríguez, also rejected Luis Almagro's comments and emphasized that her country has ample historical, legal and political reasons to defend the legitimate rights over the territory of Essequibo.

The official assured that the Secretary General of the OAS demonstrates his ignorance about the history of Latin America and added that Guyana's attempts to threaten Venezuela with the regional organization will be met with fierce rejection by the Venezuelan people.

Venezuela called for a consultative referendum on December 3 that proposes the creation of a state (province) in Guayana Esequiba and nationalizing its inhabitants.
