The Commonwealth continues to stand behind the government of Guyana in the border controversy with Venezuela.

In addition to stating its wholehearted support of Guyana in several communiqués since the resurgence of the issue, by Venezuela, the organization is set to consider and ratify a declaration in support of Guyana’s stance at its upcoming heads of government meeting in Malta, from November 27th to 29th.

According to Guyana’s minister of foreign affairs, Carl Greenidge, who will be attending the meeting, alongside President David Granger, the declaration is one compiled by the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group comprising foreign ministers from nine member countries.

In addition to the Guyana-Venezuela controversy, the Commonwealth heads meeting also has as part of its agenda the selection of a new secretary general, discussion on climate actions, violent extremism and radicalisation, the unprecedented challenges presented by migration, and the implementation of the UN 2015-2030 sustainable development goals, among others.
