Venezuela leader to meet with opposition delegation

CARACAS--President Nicolas Maduro has agreed to meet with a Venezuelan opposition delegation on Tuesday, after a fresh push from top diplomats from across South America.

But a leading opposition coalition has not said if it will take part.

In just over two months, 39 people have died in clashes between security forces and protesters angered by soaring crime, high inflation and shortages that the demonstrators blame on Maduro's elected, heavily state-led Socialist government.

One problem is that only a small part of those opposing Maduro's government and policies have so far agreed to talk. University students have led protests, and organized political foes include both moderate and radical wings.
