Venezuela's government and opposition reported progress Tuesday in a new round of talks aimed at ending two months of deadly protests that have rocked the oil-rich nation.
The government again rejected an opposition demand for amnesty for 175 people arrested in the disturbances. But the head of the government delegation, Vice President Jorge Arreaza, left the possibility open for the future.
"The meeting was always held on good terms, with respect and tolerance," said Arreaza. "The peace dialogue is advancing."
