The United States has reiterated its commitment to constructive dialogue with the government of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela. The statement comes at a crucial time as negotiations between Washington and Caracas are expected to resume today, with a focus on the upcoming Venezuelan elections scheduled for July 28.

Brian Nichols, the State Department’s head of Latin America, has been a constant voice in promoting dialogue: “We are always open to dialogue. I have said this many times.”Nichols said at a recent press conference.

The official has played a key role as one of the main interlocutors of the United States with the Maduro government and the anti-Chavez opposition. The process has also had the active participation of the White House.

The president of the National Assembly of Venezuela, Jorge Rodríguez, will be Maduro’s representative in this new round of contacts with the US authoritiesAlthough details of these talks are scarce, it is known that the main topic will be the lifting of sanctions and the holding of democratic elections in Venezuela.

Chavismo has demanded an unconditional lifting of all US sanctions on Venezuela. Meanwhile, the Joe Biden administration has expressed its desire for the July 28 elections to be “competitive and inclusive.”

It is important to remember that the United States lifted sanctions on Venezuelan oil in October last year, a measure that was reversed six months later due to the disqualification of María Corina Machado, the main opposition presidential candidate.
