Since the early 19th century, venezuela has claimed the area of present-day guyana, which it calls Guayana Esequiba. This claim has its roots in the disputed 18th-century border between the Spanish colonies of venezuela and New Granada. venezuela bases its claim on the Treaty of Madrid of 1750, which defined the border between the two colonies. However, guyana argues that the treaty was never ratified by the British Crown, and therefore is not legally binding.

The territorial dispute between venezuela and guyana has been a source of tension for many years. In 2015, venezuela began construction of a military base in the disputed territory, which led to protests from the government of guyana. In 2016, venezuela seized a ship belonging to a Guyanese company that was exploring for oil in the disputed territory.

The territorial dispute between venezuela and guyana is a complex issue with a long history. Both countries have valid claims to the territory, and there is no easy solution. However, the situation is made even more complicated by the fact that venezuela is currently in the midst of a political and economic crisis. The Venezuelan government has been increasingly authoritarian, and the economy is in shambles. This has led to mass protests and violence in the country, and has made it difficult for the government to focus on the territorial dispute with guyana.
