The government of Trinidad and Tobago reported this Saturday, October 17, that it is in constant communication with Venezuela in the face of the threat that the tanker Nabarima, which contains more than a million barrels of oil, may capsize in the Gulf of Paria.
“Our Government remains concerned about the threat that this accident could cause to the environment,” said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Affairs of the Caribbean Community (Caricom) in a press release.
The ministry also said that its team of experts is ready to go to the area to inspect the area where the ship is located.
The Trinidadian government also indicated that, although Venezuela admitted that the ship was inclined, it no longer presents a danger because it stabilized.
However, The ministry of that country affirmed that it has requested to confirm this information, which is why it wrote to the Venezuelan Government in order to have access and make its own determinations on several occasions.
Given this, Venezuela has agreed to allow a team of Trinidadian experts to cross the border and reach the ship, but after the October 20.
The Trinidadian government criticized its counterpart; since, last Thursday15, the Venezuelan ambassador declared that the viral photo of the inclination of the ship was propaganda.
“The ambassador claims that this photo was taken more than a month before work was done on stabilizing the ship and that now it had gone viral to misinform,” he said.
“The government of Trinidad and Tobago, once again, reiterates its concern and maintains its request for permission to access and inspect the vessel on our own as soon as possible ”, added the authority.
In the same way, he said that communication has been maintained with the ambassador of Venezuela and the United States in Port of Spain, the Venezuelan Minister of Foreign Affairs, as well as with other officials of Energy, Health and National Security so that they are attentive to the situation.
For its part, the US embassy in Trinidad and Tobago demanded that they intervene in the maritime accident, although he announced that he would not issue any sanction due to a possible environmental situation involved.
However, he reiterated that “the United States remains concerned about the potential risk to safety and the environment caused by the ship.”
“We will support immediate sanctions to accommodate the ship to international security standards and evade any possible environmental damage, because this would not only impact Venezuelans, but also neighboring countries, “he said.
Finally, he warned the Venezuelan state company PDVSA to take responsibility for the event “to avoid any environmental disaster in Venezuelan waters.”
