GEORGETOWN/CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela’s navy “intercepted” a ship exploring for oil on behalf of Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM.N) in Guyanese waters over the weekend, Guyana’s foreign ministry said in a statement, while neighboring Venezuela said the incident occurred within its territory.

The latest incident in a century-old border dispute comes after a series of offshore oil discoveries have given Guyana the potential to become one of Latin America’s largest producers. In OPEC member Venezuela, by contrast, crude output has tumbled to the lowest levels in nearly 70 years amid an economic crisis.
=============================================
More justification for The Donald to 'Wag the Dog' by invading Venezuela to 'render humanitarian assistance' while invoking the Monroe Doctrine over the presence of 2 Russian nuclear-capable bombers in Venezuela. Could start to read like Kennedy's Cuba Missile Crisis.

Venezuela owes China its soul and all of its money. Let China take care of it.
