Venezuelan opposition to discuss US, EU sanction removal

Venezuelan opposition will meet the United States and the European Union governments to discuss the removal of sanctions on President Nicolas Maduro's government on the condition that he arranges "free and fair" elections.

"We will discuss with our allies a framework under which they feel comfortable, for example, with that progressive lifting of sanctions based on [Maduro's] compliance with an agreement," opposition leader Juan Guaido (pictured) said.

The last negotiations between the country's government and opposition in Oslo fell apart after Washington intensified sanctions against Caracas.
