247 – Former Rep. Aldo Rebelo on Sunday (24) defended the Brazilian government speaking out against the possible establishment of a US military base in Guyana. “Brazil has an obligation to veto the establishment of any foreign military base in South America, otherwise it will see its strategic periphery engulfed in a military escalation that will reduce Brazil’s geopolitical importance in the region to nothing. At the moment, the exposed nerve is Guyana,” Rebelo said on X (formerly Twitter).
“That’s it: The United States intends to establish a military base to ensure its companies explore oil in Guyana, but says that Brazil’s oil exploration in the Amazon threatens the planet. There are those in the Brazilian government who believe that the United States is right,” added Aldo Rebelo, who defends About oil exploration in the tropical margin.
According to Venezuelan Foreign Minister Ivan Gil, the US government intends to militarize the territorial dispute between Venezuela and Guyana over the Essequibo region, establishing a military base in this oil-rich region. For more than 100 years, Venezuela and Guyana, a former British colony and now a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, have fought over control of the oil-rich Essequibo region.
In 1966, the two countries signed the Geneva Agreement to search for a peaceful solution, but in 2018, Guyana filed a lawsuit with the International Court of Justice, requesting legal recognition of the 1899 decision of the Paris Court of Arbitration, which granted the territory to Guyana.
Registered with the United Nations, the 1966 Geneva Convention regulates border disputes between Venezuela and British Guiana, and establishes measures to resolve the dispute, but Caracas has not ratified any of the initial protocols.
