For several months Venezuela has been experiencing unrest, which intensified in the run-up to Constituent Assembly election held on July 30. Saying it was aiming to stabilize the situation in the country amid the ongoing economic and political crisis, the government wanted to launch the assembly, but the opposition was strongly against the move regarding it as an attempted coup.

Since September 2017 the sides have held three rounds of talks hosted by the Dominican Republic. The latest round lasted from Thursday till Saturday and focused on normalization of the situation in the country.
