Venezuela Delegation Arrives in Mexico for Talks with Opposition
After finding common grounds on several issues during the last round of negotiations, Caracas and the opposition are to hold another round of talks in Mexico.
The latest round of negotiations between the Venezuelan government and the opposition is set to resume after the Caracas delegation arrived in Mexico.
"We have arrived in lovely, welcoming Mexico to defend the truth and the dignity of Venezuela," National Assembly President and Head of the Caracas delegation Jorge Rodriguez, said on Twitter.
President Nicolas Maduro tweeted he was "awaiting new agreements and positive results" from the gathering.
There was no word on when the Norway-mediated negotiations held in Mexico would begin.
The delegation representing opposition leader Juan Guaido said Friday it was hopeful for dialogue, and that it "reiterates its commitment to advance in this process."
During the last round of negotiations, also held in the capital of Mexico, the Caracas delegation signed “partial agreements” with the opposition in Mexico City on the second day. The talks were aimed mainly at ensuring the participation of opponents of President Nicolas Maduro in the upcoming regional elections in November.
The two sides also found common grounds on the country's pandemic response during the previous round.
