Earlier this Saturday the Norwegian Foreign Ministry also ratified the continuation of the talks and reiterated its commitment to "continue supporting the search for a solution agreed between the parties for Venezuela."

"Norway praises the parties for their efforts and appreciates their willingness," Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide said in an official statement.

On the other hand, in a new act of interference in the internal affairs of Venezuela, the State Department of the United States Government (USA) issued a text during the day rejecting the Venezuelan dialogue process.

"Previous efforts to negotiate the end of the regime and free elections have failed because the regime has used them to divide the opposition and buy time, we believe that the only thing that can be negotiated with Nicolás Maduro are the conditions of his departure," says the American statement.

[And echoed by Marco Rubio:]


Past negotiations with #MaduroRegime failed because they used them 
to divide the opposition & gain time.
I hope #OsloTalks can help make progress towards the return of democracy 
to #Venezuela. But any election conducted with #Maduro in power will not 
be a free & fair one.

The talks initiated in mid-May in Norway have received the support and congratulations of the United Nations (UN) and its secretary general, António Guterres, who has shown willingness to collaborate in the process.

The Venezuelan government has insisted on the path of dialogue as the alternative to resolve political differences in the country and reach an agreement on peace and reconciliation. However, in line with the White House some opposition sectors insist on the ignorance of the legitimate authorities and opt for a foreign military intervention. SOURCE
