Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard notified the arrival of a communiqué from his Norwegian counterparts that the parties that will participate in the talks on Venezuela have entered the final phase of their exploratory talks in order to begin negotiations in Mexico.
It was speculated that the meeting would be inaugurated tomorrow, Friday, but both Mexico and Norway, as well as the Venezuelan parties involved, remain tight-lipped on the matter.
Ebrard’s announcement was made after President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador informed last week that the country will host the negotiations between Maduro’s executive and the Venezuelan opposition due to the crisis in that country.
Diplomatic sources indicate that the Mexican government will release information on the negotiation on the same day it takes place and not before, but officially nothing has even been said in that sense.
The Venezuelan constitutional president, Nicolas Maduro, declared this week that the preliminary talks with the opposition are going well, and indicated that in the next few days the date and place of the negotiation will be announced, which will include the participation of other countries, among them the United States.
