Venezuela worried by Barbados offshore oil plans

Venezuela’s government wants to know if Barbados plans to grant licenses for offshore oil drilling within Caribbean waters claimed by the South American country.

Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez says foreign ministry officials plan to contact Barbados to discuss the possible violation of Venezuela’s sovereignty in the Caribbean Sea.

“Things are put back in place by conversing directly,” Ramirez said Tuesday.

Ramirez was responding to newspaper reports that Barbados plans to issue offshore drilling licenses to international oil companies within waters claimed by Venezuela along the eastern Caribbean.
