From what I know, one of the major issues between Guyana and Venezuela is that the Guyanese government has started negotiations with Exxon-Mobil to drill and produce oil in disputed territory, as you can read in Exxon's $40 billion oil discovery sparks a nasty feud. Even after several calls and diplomatic meetings, the Government of Guyana
doesn't follow the norms accepted and signed by Venezuela and Guyana in the Geneva Agreement.
cancels bilateral conversations.
blatantly avoids any satisfactory solution for practical agreement as the Geneva's Agreement says.
denies any UN negotiator appointed by the General Secretary (this figure was settled in the Geneva Agreement).
Therefore, why do both parts keep doing these and avoiding the diplomatic solutions settled in the Geneva Agreement? What do they gain with their rhetorical positions?
