Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has signed six decrees on the accession of the Essequibo region.
The Venezuelan media outlet Últimas Noticias reports.
The Venezuelan leader also approved a new map of the country, including Essequibo, and appointed Rodríguez Cabello as the sole authority for Guayana Esequiba with a political and administrative headquarters in Tumeremo.
Maduro also called on the Venezuelan people to condemn right-wing groups that allegedly sided with Guyana against national interests.
It will be recalled that on December 3, Venezuela annexed Essequibo, an oil-rich part of Guyana.
Nicolás Maduro ordered the creation of branches of the state-owned oil and gas company PDVSA and the metallurgical conglomerate CVG in the region.
