The goal is to pursue talks with Maduro's leftist administration after three months of often violent street protests that have killed 42 people and wounded more than 800 .Opposition leaders began tentative talks with the government on April 10, but there has been little progress and few results.Maduro added there were some unacceptable issues being raised by the opposition. One of the main MUD leaders, former mayor Leopoldo Lopez, has been held in a military prison since he was arrested in February in the midst of a massive opposition protest rally.While the intensity of the protests has diminished over the last month, in some areas, especially Caracas, anti-government demonstrations continue.
