Following voter approval in a referendum held earlier this month, Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro has ramped up rhetoric and support for annexation of the resource-rich Essequibo region in neighboring Guyana. Recent developments have escalated the long-standing territorial dispute between Venezuela and Guyana, bringing the prospects of a military conflict into the spotlight. Maduro’s actions, reminiscent of Russia’s approach in Ukraine, have centered around intensifying claims over Guyana’s resource-rich Essequibo region. The situation raises critical questions about the two nations’ military capabilities, Maduro’s decision-making process, and the potential involvement of international powers such as the United States and the United Kingdom in resolving the dispute.
