The Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB) has sounded its alarms after learning of the deployment of a British ship in the eastern Caribbean, north of Guyana, sent by London to protect its former colony. "A warship in waters to be delimited? And then? And the commitment to good neighborliness and peaceful coexistence? And the agreement not to threaten and use force mutually under any circumstances? We remain alert to these provocations that put the peace and stability of the Caribbean and our America at risk!", reacted General Vladimir Padrino López, Minister of Defense and great leader of the Chavista generalate.

From London it is considered that the presence on the high seas of the patrol ship HMS Trent, which usually watches over the African coasts, is a gesture of support for its ally, but in Caracas it has been felt as a breach of the agreement reached days ago in the Caribbean Kingston, where Presidents Nicolás Maduro and Irfaan Alí committed that "directly or indirectly, they will not threaten or use force against each other under any circumstances, including those derived from any controversy existing between both states."

The agreement also contemplates that in the event of an incident, Guyana and Venezuela will immediately communicate with each other, in addition to the Caribbean Community (Caricom), the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and the Brazilian president. , Lula da Silva, to "contain, reverse or prevent its recurrence."

During the electoral campaign for the referendum on Essequibo, a million-dollar oil territory in dispute between both nations and under the administration of Guyana, Chavista threats proliferated, which included the declaration of annexation (which has not occurred) of that territory, which they renamed like Guyana Esequiba. It was at that time that another of Georgetown's allies, the United States, made flights over the conflict zone. In addition to the US and the United Kingdom, Ali has the support of the 15 Caricom countries, the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Commonwealth.

Since the escalation of war began, which scared the continent due to the fear that Nicolás Maduro would turn the Essequibo into his Venezuelan Malvinas, the Caracas government put the British Foreign Minister, "the failed and infamous" David Cameron, in its target. of disqualifications, for being the "chancellor of the former imperial power of the United Kingdom".

Maduro blames the United Kingdom for being the cause of "the theft of Guayana Esequiba, which left as a legacy this controversy that we will know how to resolve through direct dialogue without malicious interference."

"That is the custom of those ancient empires, they believe that they are owners of their former colonies," pontificated the "people's president."

Intelligence agencies of the revolution have dissected the journey and the weapons available to HMS Trent, which crossed the 3,200 miles that separate Gibraltar from Barbados for 12 days. Her main weapons are a 30mm autocannon and four heavy machine guns.
