CARACAS (Reuters) – Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaido on Tuesday proposed a progressive lifting of U.S. sanctions on the South American country as an incentive for President Nicolas Maduro’s government to reach an agreement with opposition parties.

In a video posted on his Twitter account, Guaido proposed a “national agreement” that would include a schedule for general elections with all opposition political parties, as well as the ruling Socialist Party.
