Venezuela opposition leader Juan Guaido confirmed that he sent «some envoys» to Norway, but denied that talks had already been held with the government delegation in a speech from Caracas on Thursday.
«There are some envoys in Norway,» Guaido said in a speech from Caracas's Chamber of Commerce auditorium.
The Scandinavian country was trying to bring both sides together, but talks have not taken... Еще place, he informed the crowd.
It is the first official mediation process between Nicolas Maduro's government and the opposition in a months-long power struggle.
Reports of the meeting first emerged on Thursday. They were later confirmed by Venezuela's Ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva Juan Jorge Valero.
Norway's foreign ministry has not commented on whether the talks had taken place.
Norway has previously mediated in the Colombian armed conflict.
