France opens an embassy in Guyana

France will soon open an embassy in Guyana, “a first for a member country of the European Union”, announced the Quai d’Orsay in a press release.

France will soon open an embassy in Guyana, “a first for a member country of the European Union”, announced the Quai d’Orsay in a press release, during a visit by the head of French diplomacy Stéphane Séjourné.

The French Minister of Foreign Affairs went to Georgetown on Tuesday to announce it, during discussions with President Irfaan Ali and his Guyanese counterpart Hugh Todd, “under the sign of major international crisis issues (Haiti, Ukraine, Near -Orient)”.

Guyana presides over the Caribbean Community (Caricom), in the midst of a security and political crisis in Haiti. He is also an elected member of the UN Security Council.

“Diplomatic rearmament of France”


“The minister knows that he can find in Guyana an interlocutor to advance the efforts of the international community to resolve these crises,” insists the Quai, which specifies that this is the first time that a French Minister of Foreign Affairs goes to Guyana.

This decision “is also part of France’s diplomatic rearmament”, specifies the Quai d’Orsay, after the announcements concerning “an Embassy in Samoa, a Consulate General in Mosul and Melbourne and the creation of 700 additional posts of here 2027 for French diplomacy.”

Guyana and Venezuela dispute the disputed and oil-rich Essequibo region.
