Despite the ongoing controversy, President Ali remains open to discussions with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on matters unrelated to the territorial dispute, as the issue is currently before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and not open for negotiation. In addressing the public’s concerns, President Ali warned against misinformation and fear-mongering on social media. He urged citizens to rely on official sources for accurate information and reassured them of the government’s continuous efforts in ensuring national security.

The President also emphasized the importance of media engagement in educating the population about the issue, cautioning against sensationalism and the creation of unnecessary unease. As Guyana awaits the ICJ’s ruling, President Ali’s administration continues to navigate this complex territorial dispute, demonstrating a commitment to international law and diplomatic solutions while ensuring national preparedness for any eventualities.
