The meeting, which lasted about 2 hours, was also attended by the Chancellor of the Republic, Delcy Rodríguez
“I’ve ratified in a long conversation our interest that, sooner than later we can build an agenda of respect between the two Governments, it is not easy for the differences that there have always been, for the attempts made again and again by the United States of cornering our country (…) but I have sent a message to President (Barack) Obama to reconsider his stance against the Bolivarian Revolution”, said President Maduro at the end of the meeting.
