Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro once again urged the country’s opposition to engage in dialogue for national reconciliation on Friday, APA reports citing TASS.

"I reaffirm my call for a national dialogue for the sake of peace. Next week will bring good news about results of our talks. I keep insisting on setting up a permanent body [to engage] in dialogue for peace," the Venezuelan leader said on Friday during the national Independence Day celebrations, aired by Venezolana de Television.

"I call for peace and national unity," he said. "No more conspiracies and anger, no more calls for military intervention, for sanctions and embargoes!"

Venezuela has been going through an acute social-economic crisis in the last several years, accompanied by hyperinflation and currency devaluation. This year the situation has been further complicated by the escalation of the confrontation between the government and the opposition.
