Maduro Rejects Talks with Opposition over Envoy’s Remarks

President Nicolas Maduro said Friday night that he won’t resume talks with the opposition until it rejects calls by a top supporter in Britain to give up Venezuela’s longstanding claims to an oil-rich part of neighboring Guyana, The Washington Post reports.

Maduro’s comments came after his chief prosecutor opened an investigation against Vanessa Neumann, the top envoy in London for opposition leader Juan Guaido, who is recognized as Venezuela’s rightful president by the U.S., United Kingdom and four dozen other nations.

“Until they rectify their position, they won’t see our faces,” Maduro said in a televised meeting with aides.

Talks on ending Venezuela’s political stalemate had been taking place under the sponsorship of Norway since April.
