“Military deployments” in border region includes marine and ground troops

The “extraordinary” military deployments by Venezuelan in its border region with Guyana include marine and group troops, President David Granger has said.
The border controversy with Venezuela is deepening with President David Granger today saying that there is now an extraordinary military deployment by Venezuela on its border region with Guyana.  “The situation is getting worse not better. Although Venezuela is embroiled in a major controversy with Colombia, we have recently received reports that Venezuela is making extraordinary military deployments in Eastern Venezuela; that is western Guyana; that seems to be impacting on Guyana’s territorial defence,” President Granger said this morning at his Georgetown Ofiice.
The President and his security chiefs are currently in a meeting to decide on an appropriate response.
“We feel that Venezuela is threading a very dangerous course at this point in time. Rather than seeking a peaceful resolution of the matter, Venezuela seems to be pursuing a very offensive and aggressive course,” Granger stated.
He added: “I have been in my earlier profession familiar with Venezuelan behaviour and what we have noticed during the month of September is extraordinary escalation of Venezuelan military activity in eastern Venezuela- it is extraordinary, it is abnormal.”
