"Representatives of the european and Latin american countries meet on Thursday to discuss solutions to the crisis in Venezuela. President Nicolás Maduro, who has rejected the EU ultimatum to hold new presidential elections, welcome the meeting and said they support all initiatives that promote dialogue."
"But the opposition leader Juan Guaidó, January 23, proclaimed himself interim president, rejects any discussions with the government and argue that it is just an attempt from Maduro to buy themselves time."
"the Meeting is being held in the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo, and brings together representatives from the EU and seven of its member states – France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and the Uk – as well as Uruguay, Mexico, Bolivia, Costa Rica and Ecuador."
"Sweden's foreign minister Margot Wallström (S) had planned to travel to the meeting, but the plans dashed due to illness in the crew of the aircraft. No other representative from Sweden will be in place."
