(AP) — The Venezuelan government and the opposition are resuming talks aimed at ending the political crisis in their country.

Venezuelan Information Minister Jorge Rodríguez said Monday on Twitter that he and the rest of the government’s delegation have arrived for negotiations in the Caribbean nation of Barbados, where several days of talks were also held last week.

Rodríguez was accompanied by representatives, including Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza and Gov Héctor Rodríguez, governor of Venezuela’s Miranda state, in the video message.

Chief opposition negotiator Stalin González earlier confirmed that his delegation was returning to Barbados for talks mediated by Norway.

The US-backed opposition wants to oust Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, who has defied pressure to resign.
