The Speaker of the National Assembly of Venezuela, Jorge Rodriguez, met with opposition representative Gerardo Blyde for the first time since October 2021. Rodriguez posted a photo of the meeting on his Twitter.

“As a representative of the delegation of the Venezuelan government, I met with Gerardo Blyde to find a plan of action for the future,”— the politician wrote under the photo.

Earlier, sources told Reuters about the imminent resumption of negotiations between the government and the opposition of Venezuela. According to them, this is due to Washington's demand in exchange for the lifting of a number of sanctions against the work of foreign oil companies in the country.

Amid the mass protests of 2019 in Venezuela, the United States supported opposition leader Juan Guaido, and former President Donald Trump proclaimed him head of the country. Washington also imposed sanctions against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his entourage, imposed restrictions on the export and import of oil.

Earlier on May 18, Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez confirmed the lifting of US sanctions on the work of foreign oil companies in the country. On the same day, the US Treasury, in agreement with the State Department, issued a license that gives permission to the American oil and gas company Chevron to negotiate a possible resumption of production in Venezuela.
