The Deputy and member of the Delegate Commission of the National Assembly, Williams Dávila Barrios, reiterated that Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship does not defend the sovereignty or territorial identity of Venezuela.
“The dictatorship has committed acts of treason against the country by abandoning the fight for the Essequibo territory,” said Mr. Dávila in statements offered to Radio AN (National Assembly).
Furthermore, the legislator assured that Maduro’s regime, instead of handling the issue as a State policy, with broad criteria and with the collaboration of all sectors of the country, was negligent in this matter not to go to the International Court of Justice (CIJ) on March 8th to defend the rights of the Nation.
The parliamentarian for ‘Acción Democrática’ party demanded that the whole nation be summoned to prepare the report that Venezuela must present on March 8th, 2023 before the ICJ.
Finally, he stressed that the country cannot negotiate away or cede the Essequibo territory, on the contrary, it must defend it.
“There are objective, legal, political, and historical titles to our sovereignty over the Essequibo territory,” he concluded.
