Guyana pleased with UN efforts to resolve border controversy – Granger

first_imgFrom left: Sir Shridath Ramphal, Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge, President David Granger and Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Rudolph Michael Ten-PowPresident David Granger said that he is satisfied with the efforts of United Nations (UN) Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, in trying to resolve the Guyana-Venezuela border controversy.He said that while the Government had hoped that the process of ending the 50-year-long controversy would have been further advanced, it is not due to lack of effort by the Secretary-General’s Office, but rather the slothful pace at which the Venezuelan Government is moving.The President made these remarks on Monday at a press briefing held on the margins of the 71st Regular Session of the UN General Assembly, currently underway in New York. He was joined by Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge, Guyana’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Rudolph Michael Ten-Pow and Sir Shridath Ramphal, a former Commonwealth Secretary-General who has been assisting with legal and other issues relating to the controversy.“I am satisfied with what the Secretary-General has done; I am not satisfied that the Bolivarian Republic has acted in good faith. It is clear that much more needs to be done by Venezuela if this matter is to be resolved… In my experience over the last 50 years I have not seen a Secretary-General so engaged in this matter, he has done everything possible over the last year since first meeting in Bridgetown. I am convinced of his sincerity in trying to bring this matter to closure,” the President declared.He explained that since the signing of the Geneva Agreement in February 1966, Guyana has abided by all of its provisions. This agreement has given the Secretary-General specific responsibilities in the absence of Guyana and Venezuela reaching a mutually accepted position.The Head of State further outlined that the Secretary-General is required to choose a course for the peaceful resolution of the controversy. At this point however, all other courses of action have been exhausted, including the Good Officer’s process, which is why Guyana has recommended that the Secretary-General refer the matter for juridical settlement, which is the only remaining option.“We waited for 50 years and Guyana’s approach now is to ask the Secretary-General to take the matter forward for a juridical settlement so that we don’t have to wait for 50 more years for a settlement… I am very hopeful that this Secretary-General, given his engagement over the last year or more, is going to do something which is going to lead to a favourable outcome,” he said.Similar sentiments were expressed by Minister Greenidge who affirmed that Guyana is not prepared to accept anything other than a move to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), to bring a permanent resolution to this matter.He recognised however, that though a clear pronunciation on the course of action to be taken may not come out of this meeting, Guyana fully acknowledges the work of the Secretary-General’s Office in working with both parties to take steps to resolve the matter.Additionally, Minister Greenidge disclosed that Guyana will join other Caricom territories to hold talks with countries like the United States and Japan on issues such as regional security and corresponding banking.last_img read more

Real and City through as United breathe sigh of relief

first_imgReal Madrid and Manchester City qualified for the Champions League knock-out rounds with victories over Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla respectively.And there was relief at Old Trafford as Manchester United ended a 400-minute wait for a goal to beat CSKA Moscow 1-0 on Tuesday.A fortuitous goal from Nacho proved decisive for 10-time champions Real to win 1-0 despite being outplayed for the majority of the first half of their Group A game at the Santiago Bernabeu. Also Read – A league of his own!PSG were on top throughout the first period with Zlatan Ibrahimovic curling a shot from the left just wide of the far post and Edinson Cavani’s stabbed dink over goalkeeper Keylor Navas cleared off the line by a defender.But the closest they came was Adrien Rabiot’s volley cannoning back off the foot of the post.And when Toni Kroos let fly from distance just after the half hour, the ball spooned up off Thiago Silva and fell to Nacho, who had only come on for injured left-back Marcelo two minutes earlier, inside the area. Also Read – Domingo named new Bangladesh cricket coachPSG goalkeeper Kevin Trapp initially came for the looping ball but as he backtracked from no-man’s land, Nacho’s casual side-foot spun wickedly on the bounce and dropped inside the far post.Little happened in the second half but Angel Di Maria did hit the bar late on with a free-kick, although the French champions couldn’t find the goal their play deserved.Real qualified from Group A thanks to Shakhtar Donetsk romping to a 4-0 win over Malmo, a result which means a win for PSG in either of their last two matches will ensure they join Real in the last 16. City banished memories of their recent Champions League struggles as a confident 3-1 win in Seville qualified them for the last 16 with two games to spare in Group D.Borussia Moenchengladbach’s failure to beat Juventus in Germany, where the sides played out a 1-1 draw, meant City, who now top the group, have made it to the knock-out stages for only the third time.Raheem Sterling set them on their way with a goal after eight minutes while Fernandinho doubled the advantage three minutes later. Frenchman Benoit Tremoulinas gave the Spanish hosts hope but Wilfried Bony’s crisp low finish nine minutes from the break effectively killed the contest, giving City a third straight Group D victory since losing 2-1 at home to Juve in their opening game.In Germany Fabian Johnson gave Borussia the lead on 18 minutes but Stephan Lichtsteiner marked his return from minor heart surgery with the equaliser a minute before the break to restore parity.Juve held on for the final 35 minutes with 10 men after Hernanes was dismissed for a late tackle on Alvaro Dominguez, meaning the Italians need only two more points to go through.City’s neighbours United laboured for long periods despite near total domination against CSKA at Old Trafford before a late Wayne Rooney header snatched a 1-0 win that puts the Red Devils in control of Group B.PSV Eindhoven’s 2-0 win at home to Wolfsburg means United lead those two by a point but a victory over the Dutch outfit at Old Trafford in three weeks time will book the three-time winners’ place in the last 16.United came into the game on the back of three successive 0-0 draws with manager Louis van Gaal’s tactics increasingly coming in for criticism.Urged on by their fans to “attack, attack, attack”, United buzzed around their opponents from the off and enjoyed 70 percent possession but were often let down by their final ball or a poor finish.Just before Rooney scored, goalkeeper David De Gea, a virtual spectator throughout, had to come to his side’s rescue after Ahmed Musa’s perfectly weighted ball sent Seydou Doumbia racing clear.De Gea made a brilliant one-handed save to deny the Ivory Coast forward before the back-tracking Chris Smalling slid in to crucially clear the follow-up off the line.last_img read more
