Venezuela's Government insists on the political dialogue as the best tool for peace, despite the denial of the right wing sector to seat at the discussion table, President Nicolas Maduro said.
At a television appearance, Maduro added that several initiatives have been implemented, as well as meetings between foreign observers and the opposition alliance Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD, in Spanish).
A document came out of those encounters which is under debate to move forward in the political talks.
Maduro said the MUD should still abide by commitments it pledged to since last November.
'I'm optimistic, however, that the opposition will carry out those agreements, that's why I call on the opposition to stay on the peace process for the good of the country', the President said.
