Venezuela's opposition said it agreed to attend exploratory talks on Tuesday with President Nicolas Maduro's government in a bid to end the country's worst political unrest for a decade. Foreign ministers from the regional Union of South American Nations are in the capital Caracas, shuttling between meetings with the administration and opposition and seeking to persuade both sides to talk. "We accept the foreign ministers' proposal to hold an exploratory, preparatory meeting to agree the conditions, date and time for public dialogue," Aveledo told reporters.
