UNITED STATES – The United Nations Security Council says it will convene a private meeting to discuss the recent developments regarding a territorial dispute between Guyana and Venezuela over the Essequibo region in Guyana.

The security council said Guyana had requested the meeting in an April 5 letter sent by President Irfaan Ali to the council. Venezuela is expected to participate.

Guyana and Venezuela have been feuding over the region for decades, with tensions deepening after vast oil deposits were found near Guyana’s coast in 2015 in offshore areas intersecting the disputed territory.
