The aforementioned material was donated by the representative of the Dubai Limited company, Ugo Giuliani, who after approximately one year of exhaustive investigation found maps and documents of the area in dispute in London, England. In this context, the Venezuelan representative explained that the donated material was presented at the Border Directorate of the ministerial entity, in order to carry out technical studies in order to verify its authenticity, because they contain an important historical value. “This information is about Esequibo and these people have indicated that it will favor Venezuela. We have received them at the Border Directorate, to assess and analyze this information, as well as its historical and political reach, to strengthen the defense of Venezuela over the Esequibo territory”, said Yánez. At the same time, the Vice-minister said that this material encourages the construction of the historical narrative, and reveals how the British Empire altered maps, hid information or handled in an interested way the work of cartographers paid by the British to harm Venezuela in relation to their historical positions in the Esequibo territory.
