The government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and the opposition are continuing to hold talks in Barbados in an effort to find ways to resolve the Latin American country’s political crisis.

According to Reuters, Friday’s statement, the first in three weeks, came a day after U.S. President Donald Trump said he was considering a quarantine or blockade of Venezuela and ahead of a summit in Peru on the Venezuelan crisis, which U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross will attend.

Norway’s Foreign Ministry said that the representatives of the main political actors in Venezuela are continuing the negotiations and the parties have reiterated their willingness to advance in the search for an agreed upon and constitutional solution.

Maduro, who after saying the dialogue was progressing and that he would “meet even with the devil,” alleged that the United States is timing new sanctions on Venezuelan officials to coincide with the new rounds of talks.
