Venezuela govt, protestors set dialogue


CARACAS: A Venezuelan opposition coalition and President Nicolas Maduro’s government will meet for new talks aimed at ending more than two months of deadly anti-government protests, officials said on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila). “We have a date, Thursday, but we still do not have a time and place,” said Ramon Guillermo Aveledo of the Democratic Unity. It will be the fourth such meeting, this time in private, since April 7. “They have not been what one might wish for [but]some progress has been made,” Aveledo said. Anti-government protests have rattled Venezuela since February, leaving at least 41 people dead and more than 600 injured, with opposing sides trading blame for the violence.
