CARACAS: President Nicolas Maduro and Venezuela’s opposition leaders are to meet on Thursday (Friday in Manila) for talks aimed at ending two months of deadly anti-government protests. The agreed to dialogue would be unprecedented under Maduro, who succeeded Hugo Chavez last year following the long-standing leader’s death from cancer. Opposition leader and former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles, who narrowly lost the presidency to Maduro last year, has also confirmed he would attend the talks. “I say to our people: I will go tomorrow to defend the truth,” said Capriles, who is the governor of the state of Miranda and a member of the Democratic Unity Roundtable coalition or MUD.
