Guyanese President to Address South American Defense Council

SAN JUAN – Guyanese President David Granger has been invited to address the South American Defense Council, the government of Guyana said in a statement.

Granger met with the secretary-general of the Union of South American States, or UNASUR, Ernesto Samper, who invited the Guyanese leader to take part in a meeting of the defense council.

“We discussed the regional agenda of UNASUR and the importance of the participation of Guyana in these matters, especially on topics such as infrastructure, since we will be employing some projects here,” Samper said.

The secretary-general said the invitation to address the council was aimed at giving Granger an opportunity “to explain his theories about the security of the Caribbean and its implications on the security of the whole region.”

On the issue of the border controversy between Guyana and Venezuela, Samper said that UNASUR would like to see a peaceful resolution so that the region can remain be a zone of peace.

“We all want the peace of Guyana and Venezuela,” he said.

UNASUR comprises Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela.
