The government and oppostion have reached “fundamental agreements” in order to find a solution to the crisis.

The Vatican envoy Claudio Maria Celli appeared optimistic:“I see this moment as very positive, one of the ex-presidents used the word ‘miracle’ that the two delegations talk and do so in a respectful manner.”

The opposition want an early election if President Maduro continues to refuse a referendum on his removal from office.

There are also calls for a humanitarian corridor to be opened to get urgent food and medicine into the country.

Venezuela has been hit hard by falling crude prices, which has led to a shortage of
staples.
