Venezuela's Maduro says ready for talks with Trump
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said Thursday he wanted to hold a private conversation with his US counterpart, Donald Trump.
"The foreign minister should enter into negotiations to arrange [my] personal meeting with Donald Trump or a phone conversation with Donald Trump," Maduro said in parliament, as quoted by the Panorama newspaper.
Trump has routinely accused Maduro of dictatorship after his decision to create a 545-seat legislative suberbody with a power to rewrite the constitution. Maduro claims it will help reconcile and bring peace to the nation.
