Morning Star: Domican President Brokers Peace Talks for Venezuela14 September 2017 | 06:09 | FOCUS News Agency
President Nicolas Maduro accepted an invitation from that country’s ex-president Danilo Medina and former Spanish PM Jose Luis Zapatero to resume internationally mediated negotiations in Santo Domingo planned for today.
But the right-wing opposition Democratic Unity Roundtable (Mud) coalition said it would not engage in talks unless the government addressed a list of demands including the release of all “political” prisoners — including many jailed for violence.
The Mud walked out of the previous talks in February — mediated by the Vatican — before kindling four months of violent regime-change protests that left 124 dead.
