Venezuelan government and opposition sign agreement; The USA gives a positive rating / Article

The signed deal marks “an important step in the right direction,” a senior US official said.

“We join the international community in expressing satisfaction with the resumption of talks,” the official said.

The signed agreement is “a hope for all of Latin America,” Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said.

The United States reacted quickly to the agreement, easing the sanctions imposed on Venezuela in the oil sector and confirming that it would allow the company “Chevron” to resume oil production in Venezuela on a limited scale.

The signed document is “a humanitarian agreement focused on education, health, food security, flood response, and electrical programs that benefit the Venezuelan people,” the US Treasury Department said.

The agreement signed on Saturday marks a step forward after 15 months of deadlock between the government and the opposition.

International efforts to resolve the crisis in Venezuela have intensified since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February, partly due to the pressure on world energy supplies in the aftermath of the conflict.

After Venezuela’s controversial 2018 elections, nearly 60 countries, including the United States, recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as president.

True, Guaido’s influence has waned in recent years and he has lost many important allies, such as in Venezuela, a region where many countries have elected leftist presidents.
