Venezuelan Government Agrees to Start Talks With Opposition”

Venezuela's government and opposition will hold a round of talks in the Dominican Republic on Wednesday, France's foreign minister said on Tuesday, warning Caracas that it risked European Union sanctions if it failed to engage in negotiations.

In a statement, the opposition's main coalition says it will send representatives in response to an invitation from the Dominican Republic's president to discuss conditions needed for serious dialogue.

In a televised broadcast on Tuesday evening, he voiced renewed support for dialogue and said he was sending Socialist Party heavyweight Jorge Rodriguez to represent the government in the Dominican Republic.

I was happy to learn that dialogue with the opposition would resume tomorrow in the Dominican Republic under the auspices of President of the Dominican Republic Danilo Medina and former Spanish Prime Minister, President José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.

However, it insisted it did not mean it was the beginning of formal talks with the government.

Maduro had to weather falling oil prices and a wave of opposition protests that left 125 people dead between April and July.

Many Maduro critics believe opposition leaders were duped in that dialogue process, and have grown suspicious of Zapatero as an intermediary.

Those talks broke up a month later with the opposition accusing the government of failing to adhere to earlier agreements to free political prisoners and prepare elections.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Tuesday expressed his full support for a new initiative to negotiate a political solution to the situation in Venezuela.

"I told him that France was deeply anxious by the political, economic and humanitarian situation in Venezuela", he said. This is good news, which I hope will swiftly result in concrete gestures on the ground.

"It has been made a decision to send a delegation to meet with President Medina to present the objectives of the national democratic struggle", the opposition coalition Democratic Unity Roundtable said in a statement.
