Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has agreed with representatives of the country’s opposition on a permanent dialogue. He reported about it in the Twitter account.
“After three days of intense dialogue with the opposition, we agreed to create a permanent negotiating table,” Maduro wrote.
The President appreciated the support of the Norwegian government and expressed the hope that the parties would soon reach a “great agreement on peace and coexistence.”
Negotiations began on July 9 in Barbados with the participation of the Norwegian government. The parties were to discuss six points concerning the life of the country in the economic, political, cultural, and social spheres.
The situation in Venezuela escalated on 23 January, when, after mass protests, Juan Guido proclaimed himself provisional President. The United States, most EU members, and Latin American countries recognized him as the legitimate head of state. Russia and a number of other States have announced their support for Maduro.
