TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Talks between the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and the opposition are continuing in Barbados, the foreign ministry from mediator Norway said late on Thursday in a rare statement about the progress of the discussions.

Talks between Venezuela Government, Opposition Continuing: Norway

“The representatives of the central political actors in Venezuela are continuing the negotiations initiated in Oslo with the purpose of working continuously and as efficiently as possible,” the ministry said in a statement, Reuters reported.

Talks resumed this week to try to find ways to resolve the political crisis in the Latin American nation.

Opposition leader Juan Guaido invoked the constitution in January to assume a rival interim presidency after declaring Maduro’s 2018 re-election a fraud.

Maduro calls him a puppet of the United States and blames the country’s economic problems on US sanctions meant to force him from office.
