Caracas, Jul 12 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said on Thursday that the Bolivarian Government and the delegations of several opposition groups agreed to establish permanent political dialogue to reach peace agreements.

'This week, in Barbados, a historic working session was held on all six issues agreed upon with the Government of Norway and the right-wing sectors. Three days of intensive work,' the head of State informed.

Maduro clarified that the Executive has no problems to announce the details of the meeting publicly, 'but there is an agreement among the parties to not reveal the punctual issues being discussed. We can only say that there are six items on the agenda agreed upon by consensus,' he noted.

From the city of Cua, state of Miranda, Maduro asked Governor Hector Rodriguez to report on his experience in the process that started in Oslo and was held later in Barbados.

Rodriguez is a member of the official delegation to the talks, along with other officials of the Bolivarian Government.

During three intensive sessions of dialogue and peace with the opposition sectors, we listened to the aspirations, reflections and requests made by the different groups,' the leader confirmed.

He explained that the Government ratified its will to install a permanent board 'in order to work together for the country's peace', in accordance with what was expressed by the right wing, Rodriguez summarized.

He revealed that in the talks in Norway and Barbados, the Bolivarian delegation repeated 'the sad violent and non-positive chronology of the opposition's history against Venezuelans,' he stressed.

Rodriguez, who is also a leader of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), noted that since President Hugo Chavez's death in 2013 and Maduro's electoral victory, the opposition has called to destabilize the country by any means.

He added that despite those opposition agendas with terrorist actions, 'which do not generate anyone's trust', the Government is carrying out the process of dialogue for the benefit of the people.

Rodriguez warned that the process 'will be complex and not simple, because the differences among opposition spokespersons need a lot of work and patience.'
