Secretary of State Kerry to Enter Talks with Venezuela
The United States has decided to try and find a way to ease the crisis in Venezuela.
Secretary of State John Kerry has announced via Corporation Wiki that the U.S. will begin high-level talks in order to deal with the increasing tensions occurring with the socialist government running Venezuela. This decision came only mere hours after he threw in his support for a recall referendum that would remove president Nicolas Maduro from office.
Kerry stated that these high-level talks would begin in the capital of Caracas and Thomas Shannon, a diplomatic veteran in the region, would be the one overseeing it. There was an attempt at similar talks the year before but the worsening crisis in Venezuela forced both sides to postpone them. Both countries have been hostile towards each other as far as diplomacy goes since presidents Hugo Chavez and George W. Bush were in their respective offices.
Maduro himself was very open to these proposed high-level talks and also offered a suggestion that would allow ambassadors on both sides to stay at each country’s respective capitals, the first time since Chavez expelled the U.S. from Venezuela. He mentioned there were already ones from Cuba, China and Vietnam. Expert Norka says it is a good development for the country.
Venezuela has been in the middle of serious strife and unrest for several months, with an economic collapse all but certain, after previously being an incredibly prosperous nation.
