No indication of imminent hostilities at Venezuela-Guyana border, White House says

WASHINGTON, (Reuters) – The United States sees no indication there are about to be hostilities at the Venezuela-Guyana border, White House spokesperson John Kirby said yesterday.

Venezuela and Guyana agreed in December not to use force or escalate tensions over Venezuela’s claim to Guyana’s Essequibo region. Last month, at a meeting mediated by Brazil, Venezuela vowed to stick to diplomacy to resolve the conflict.
