    President of the Dominican Republic Danilo Medina said the Venezuelan government and opposition will hold another meeting to reach an agreement.

    SANTO DOMINGO (Sputnik) — The talks between the Venezuelan government and opposition have concluded without reaching a final agreement and will resume on December 15, President of the Dominican Republic Danilo Medina said.

    "On December 15, we will hold a new meeting for talks, here in Santo Domingo, in order to reach a final agreement," Medina told reporters on Saturday.

    According to the president of the Dominican Republic, the government of Venezuela and the opposition have reaffirmed their willingness to move toward an agreement.

    The talks between the Venezuelan government and the opposition kicked off earlier in the Dominican Republic. Earlier, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said he planned to tell the opposition to throw its weight behind his bid to repeal US sanctions against Caracas.
