UK statement on detention of Guyanese fishing vessels

The UK is concerned at reports that Venezuelan vessels have detained Guyanese fishing vessels and crew. We call for their early release.

The UK is clear that the 1899 Arbitral Award settled the border between Guyana and Venezuela. We encourage a bilateral resolution to the controversy and support the efforts of the UN Secretary General.
