178. Guyana


HC Deb 02 March 1970

Mr. Brooks

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will pay an official visit to Guyana.

Mr. M. Stewart

I have no plans to visit Guyana at present.

Mr. Brooks

As we are now beyond the deadline set by the 1966 Geneva Treaty for submitting the frontier dispute with Venezuela to the United Nations, has my right hon. Friend any proposals to help ease the constant friction along Guyana’s frontiers, not least those with Suriname?

Mr. Stewart

My hon. Friend will be aware that the Geneva Agreement provided for a period of four years, but the agreement does not come to an end. After that, it is for the countries concerned, in consultation with the Secretary-General of the United Nations, to try to seek a pacific settlement of the dispute. This I hope they will do.
