Venezuelan government, opposition to hold third round of talks in Mexico

Venezuelan delegations arrived Saturday in Mexico City, Mexico to meet representatives of the opposition as part of a third round of talks with Norway mediating.

"We have come to the beautiful and hospitable land of Mexico to defend the truth and dignity of Venezuela. Wait for news from us," National Assembly President Jorge Rodriguez said on Twitter.

The aim would be the return of "stolen assets" that belong to the Venezuelan people, Rodriguez told reporters in Venezuela in a statement.

The first round of talks occurred in August and the second in early September, also in Mexico.

The government of Nicolas Maduro is seeking a lifting of international sanctions with the talks.

The Venezuelan opposition is advocating greater electoral transparency, especially in upcoming regional elections in return for the gradual lifting of US sanctions.
