BERLIN – After months of protest and a failed opposition attempt to overthrow Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, government and opposition representatives headed to Norway for talks on Wednesday, multiple media outlets reported. Reuters and the Associated Press quoted anonymous officials and the opposition as saying that representatives have already traveled to Norway for the talks. The reported talks come amid escalating tensions following opposition leader Juan Guaidó’s failed attempt to overthrow the government in a military uprising about two weeks ago. Putin is “not looking at all to get involved in Venezuela, other than he’d like to see something positive happen for Venezuela,” Trump said. Behind the scenes, foreign backers of the opposition have worked to arrange talks between the two sides to defuse tensions.
