Venezuela Boundary Dispute

Venezuela Boundary Dispute, chiefly from 1841, Anglo-Venezuelan dispute over the location of the British Guiana-Venezuela border. In 1895 U.S. president Grover Cleveland, invoking the Monroe Doctrine, demanded arbitration supervised by the United States. This initially strained Anglo-U.S. relations almost to the point of war, but Britain submitted to arbitration, and a boundary was agreed upon in 1899.
