    Oslo hosted talks last week between envoys of Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaido and representatives of President Nicolas Maduro in a bid to broker an end to the crisis in the Latin American country.

    Venezuela has been mired in crisis since January when Guaido proclaimed himself the country's interim president. Washington and its allies endorsed Guaido and called on Maduro to step down. In addition, the United States seized billions of dollars in Venezuelan oil assets.

    Maduro has accused the United States of trying to orchestrate a coup in order to install Guaido as its puppet and take control over Venezuela’s natural resources.

    Notably, Norway was among the EU countries that have not endorsed Guaido as the Venezuelan interim president.
