Venezuelan president says dialogue with opposition “going well”

Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro has remained in power despite US sanctions and diplomatic pressure

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said on Sunday that the dialogue with the opposition, led by former deputy and self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaido, is “going well.”

Maduro said that in the coming days, the date and place of the negotiation with the opposition will be announced and that he has the support of his Mexican counterpart, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who is helping to facilitate the talks.

In September 2019, the Venezuelan government opened a dialogue with various sectors of the opposition.

There are three proposals in the current negotiations with the opposition: the lifting of all sanctions against Venezuela, the recognition of the legitimate authorities, and the renunciation of violence, Maduro said.

Maduro said the primary elections held by the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) on Sunday are an example of democracy and will contribute to the political dialogue in the country.

More than 20 million voters were eligible to participate in the PSUV internal elections to choose candidates who will participate in the national elections on Nov. 21.
