The government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and its president Nicolás Maduro are grateful for the support of the Kingdom of Norway for dialogue for peace in the Latin American country, said the People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations Jorge Arreaza.

The Venezuelan Foreign Minister released, through his Twitter account @jaarreaza, the statement issued by the Norwegian government about the exploratory talks with delegates of the Venezuelan Executive and representatives of the opposition.

“Norway reports that it has had preliminary contacts with representatives of the main political actors in Venezuela, in an exploratory phase, with the aim of supporting the search for a solution to the situation in the country. Norway praises the parties for their efforts. We reiterate our willingness to keep supporting the search for a peaceful solution in the country”, says the official text.

President Nicolás Maduro has insistently reiterated his calls for dialogue with the Venezuelan opposition, as the only alternative to the political controversy between the parties and with the vision of moving towards economic stability in the country.
