US and Venezuela “in talks”

Posted: Thursday, August 22, 2019. 1:41 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: United States President Donald Trump, and Nicholas Maduro, President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, have confirmed that senior officials from their governments have been in communication.

The news of the governments engaging in discussions comes after the US applied sustained economic pressure on Venezuela in an effort to force President Maduro to step down.

Trump told the US media that high-level officials were involved in the talks but did not specify who those officials were, while Maduro announced via radio broadcast that he has sought dialogue with the US in such a way that the US President will listen to Venezuela.

Speaking on Venezuela, Trump said, “We’re staying out of it, but we are helping it, and it needs a lot of help.”

No official word has been given about the nature of the talks or the desired outcomes.

The US and several allies went as far as to acknowledge Juan Gerardo Guaidó as Venezuela’s interim president earlier this year, despite the Venezuelan constitution not making any provision for such a post, and called on Venezuela to hold new elections during Guaidó interim presidency.

Venezuela maintains that Maduro was duly elected by over 6 million people and that the US economic sanctions are against the principles of the country’s right to self-determination and are also contrary to international law.
