"Venezuela is ready for dialogue based on respect and terms of equality among States with the government of President Barack Obama wherever, whenever, and however he wants; I state it as President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela: we are ready," stressed on Thursday Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.
Maduro reckoned that respect was pivotal to engage in such dialogue.
"If President Obama wants to shake this hand, the hand of a Venezuelan, of a patriot son of Bolívar, son of Chávez, then I am ready, I am ready to shake his hand, to talk to him looking into his eyes in equal terms," the President added.
