MEXICO CITY (AP) — Government and Venezuelan opposition representatives are continuing a dialogue aimed at finding a common path out of their country’s political standoff. The groups met in Mexico City Friday, two weeks after the signing of a memorandum of understanding that marked the start of the negotiations.
