The Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro says he wants a meeting with US President Donald Trump.

During a lengthy address to members of the new constitutional assembly, Maduro instructed the nation’s foreign minister to set up the meeting.

“Initiate negotiations Chancellor, so I can have a personal conversation with Donald Trump, initiate negotiations so I can have a telephone conversation with Donald Trump,” said Maduro. “Because if I travel to New York, in a few weeks to the United Nations, to have a meeting with Donald Trump, if you are so interested in Venezuela, here I am, here is the chief of your interest, Nicolas Maduro Moros, constitutional president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. Mr Donald Trump, here is my hand – if it is about hands, here is my word.”

The Trump administration has called Maduro a “dictator” and issued sanctions against him and more than two dozen other former and current officials.
