MEXICO CITY, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Mexico will host conciliation talks between the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and the political opposition, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Thursday.

The initiative was originally proposed by Norway, the Mexican president said during his daily press conference.

"What we are looking for is that there will be dialogue and agreements between ... the government of Venezuela and the opposition," Lopez Obrador told journalists at the National Palace in Mexico City.

"Hopefully an agreement will be reached," Lopez Obrador added, without offering further details.

At the beginning of July, the Venezuelan president agreed to enter into political dialogue in Mexico with the Venezuelan opposition on three conditions, including that all the participating political sectors renounce violent plans, all U.S.-led sanctions against Venezuela cease immediately, and the radical right-wing opposition recognize the authority of all Venezuelan state institutions.
