Venezuela has warned the US against interference in regional affairs following the latest flyover of American F/A-18 Super Hornets over Guyana on May 9. 

The move has reignited tensions in the long-standing territorial dispute over the oil-rich Essequibo region, sparking objections from Caracas.

According to a statement from the US embassy, the flyover was coordinated and approved by the Guyana Defense Force, reflecting the ongoing collaboration between the two nations.

However, Venezuela, already engaged in a diplomatic standoff with Guyana over the oil-rich Essequibo region, denounced the action as a threat to the fragile peace negotiated between Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and Guyana’s President Irfaan Ali last December.
