Guyana has received international support concerning the most recent actions of the Venezuelan government, with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken reiterating Washington's“unwavering support for Guyana's sovereignty” and reaffirming their position that Guyana has full authority over its Essequibo region. Additionally, Britain's Foreign Office stated,“The UK is concerned by the recent steps taken by Venezuela, with respect to the Essequibo region of Guyana,” ...“We believe this is unjustified and should cease.

In a televised address to the nation, President of Guyana, Dr Irfaan Ali, affirmed,“You have nothing to worry about when you invest in a country that governs itself in accordance with the rule of law, that stands on the side of democracy and understands what true freedom is,” stating,“So there is nothing to fear. Our international partners and international community are ready to support us. They've assured us of their support and all we want is for these missteps to be corrected by President Maduro of Venezuela.” [The Guardian, December 6th, 2023].
G2 Goldfields' operations are not affected in any way by the current actions in Venezuela, with five diamond drill rigs currently turning around the clock. G2 will continue to be a supportive international investor in Guyana, one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and will continue to develop the OKO project in accordance with international best practice.
