The judicial process isn’t the only avenue Guyana is pursuing in relation to this controversy. In fact, the country has been locked in bilateral engagements, getting support from bilateral partners and foreign organisations

Countries and organisations like the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Commonwealth have issued statements supporting Guyana and its commitment to the case before the ICJ.

And the President says those bilateral engagements will continue now.

“The government continues to have very positive and reassuring engagements with our international partners.

“In the coming days, I will continue to meet key and strategic partners, all of whom are committed to peace within our region,” President Ali said.

He later added, “Our partners are resolute in their commitment to Guyana.”
