Previously, Maduro read a statement signed by the Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres, in which he expresses the full support of the global entity to the proposal of the Dominican Republic and former head of the Spanish government.

He said the proposal was that each side choose two countries to participate in the talks. However, despite the fact that a roadmap was drawn between the government and the opposition, the Venezuelan right left the negotiating table.

The invitation by Medina and Zapatero "to move towards a process of negotiation and political accord" was welcomed by the governments of France and Spain, among several countries which have been heavily critical of Maduro.

"The only thing we can say is that we listen to the parties, they expressed themselves, gave their views of the situation in Venezuela", he said.

Venezuela's deep economic and political crisis has caused food and medicine shortages, deadly unrest and calls for Maduro to quit.
