Venezuelan officials reached out to discuss Maduro exit: USVenezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaido said Wednesday his rival Nicolas Maduro had been made to look ridiculous by insisting he had authorized back channel talks with Washington, only for a top US official to reveal it was Caracas who had made the initial approach behind the president’s back. The sole aim of the secret talks was to discuss Maduro’s exit from power and organizing free elections, US National Security Advisor John Bolton said Wednesday. Bolton’s comment came after Maduro said he had authorized the contacts with high level US officials, casting them as a long-standing initiative that he was aware of and had approved.
