On Friday, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) is expected to deliver its ruling on Guyana’s request for provisional measures to stop Venezuela’s referendum to annex the Essequibo Region. Attorney General Anil Nandlall hoped the ICJ would support Guyana’s submission. He also emphasized that regardless of the court’s decision, Guyana will continue to seek the international community’s support, with a particular reliance on the United States of America. This ruling is a significant development in the ongoing territorial dispute between Guyana and Venezuela. Renata Burnette provides further insights and analysis of the situation in her report.
