1:25 am
and. allowed to go there to court romances either momentum and communes have it set up the middle who have a big well 1st of all you call it a dialogue your opponents call this the best mediation that's taking place right now with the under the auspices of your no which i'm counterpart but more than that the opposition for the 1st time seems to agree on something and that is that they are demanding you all of them unanimously a demanding that president you could ask mother to step down that there be a transition government and that there that it will be free fair transparent elections under international supervision to quote them are any of those things negotiable for you talk about them and then go aboard get those when we'll see a lot of things here and you know sort of obama. there ya know and quite get into the good old the going are going to see only the center of the mess no i come. neuer scone out of anybody alabama corner going to those who don't either until are going to do so most of the book i want us all to see on the. numbers and then the
1:26 am
north down and i wanted to see where you talk about the constitution so does the opposition you're both holding up a. the constitution in your hand but this is a political conflict i think you would agree that it's political that needs a political solution so what concessions can your side give to the opposition one that comes as you're now more than i was told that i would be most i'd want to have as i don't know someone and it was the idea of that or one of your lesser political walkie and you only got daughters and then you know me this is he had to draw a line you immediately said that will come when i said i love you lend support to lecture on this go go to rio and i told myself don't send your ticket elephant they're going. to put id and i thought that they need to go go real close and what howard had up by a secular corner said i go you know and as for leno. my point is you're not getting you know ok you had jonathan i wanted to see on you know sore throat and will
1:27 am
continue well to get them ok yeah look at them ok i see i'm better political i think i can do that and we just saw the important of c s i k u conflict authority and venezuela didn't know when to use 11th but related to him i know that i would see it either suppose when he was he let me guess are you a part of the whole so you had no one cared only that or the i don't recall him going to sway that you know those when you wonder come on then to tell you why do you hang up all that because i put the letter you know and didn't wear what they contain went down them and on that i would guess yes you know i don't mean that it was. no wonder you know they're all sort of letter gets up early in the editing and bodo because you know inside or them b.b.n. there but i really meant this young. it went up and i thought again border would see about it at the multiple it. rained going to the advent of but the later people in terms of cell and supplement democrat mean it that a conflict that they conflict with that actually the place they would get alexy on
1:28 am
they would have would get a conflict also you know a classic simple about that percentage out of the numbers a minute out of the completely a c. in the party to go and promote you would then of course i mean if that end in the end but it gave them to the frenzy then they got to where the put other can be and so how do you get along with the ones that you call the bush but actually i would argue that they're not but it's not necessarily the case in the actions for the national assembly 2 thirds of venezuelans voted against the government candidates but going beyond that just the other day and i want to quote him president medvedev said come rain thunder or lightning the revolution will remain in venezuela for the rest of the 21st century i didn't create is that the type of democracy is that what the constitution says that old assume but as we go to god i will do so knowing what we have no or one president the letter was whom proceso mad it's a month and they're gone they're all there let me guess honest or not but it will
1:29 am
and to put going through either party then well people who are put up. by. the previous or set up makes the. home that i was on process were more than to be to divide them which of my yeah that would tell us what it was doing to do so and then either gain control no no one wanted to see what to do a 2nd lesson then assume then go. about that and see. only here on what i would see and you're going to turn on us and let us know so and represent done to the light and to him but as i have over time to one go there i don't think that is a thought he could have and it's really that i think up out of people political troubles as you know are you not going to put us through economic or i want to sponsor a man who does something. this is a form letter and go so you want a photo of a for your buddies are part of the loan at that moment or in the other suppose we put them in the bin but let's go back to what's happening today what's happening today this political crisis for cuba and i was surprised to hear this has been
1:30 am
requested by canada and norway to to help mediate does some kind of a dialogue which and i'm wondering what could be cuba's role especially since the opposition sees cuba as part of the problem rather than a solution. you know say better than i thought i had a man who. had any evidence or learn how to boil over as well and over that we have no one else will learn oh you know where my kid that i'm the demon so i can being as a whole we have a bed or a lot of in the end there you go there but i know boys you're going to. sue under one of them again and when i was yep it was some. sort of handle in a body begin to understand it well what can you tell me about what could have been discussed in no way no boil yourself. improve the process would have been had then i said but would you say that there's reason for optimism or is it still too early but this and when i confront this your own political see in them but every day i
1:31 am
want to confront those whom barely can see i'm going to what i know as we speak the opposition you know why those representatives in washington got to make us about to meet with the u.s. military southern command. and i'm about to ask of course for it to co-create help or assurances that the united states will come to the opposition's aid militarily do you believe that there is a real credible threat of u.s. military intervention in minnesota was it a bluff no come close i'll go ahead like i said learn to annoy bluffs going to who's going to like us so long to see him break it then add more more more talk we always put a very dollar has an idea for a president that they don't bring a water bill mean this is you have to go they go ok you're going to wind up with us or many don't want to live in this world and elsewhere was only for one bill for the wrong boat and the term investor bailed out the 2 brands for the age of 2 i don't see and i think sort of the message going to be done but i'll put it like it
1:32 am
is and i do see lawson going to have a nice reload but i'm going to look over my knee and i know what i'm going to and he got i want us all mine i walked on by the org on their bodies and after going to placing us on the i wanted to get brought they headed north and i swear that venezuela i think at the moment to be center hopefully to go there one of your last young. i didn't in that interview and i guess he better me deems he better meeting . with the international i'm going as well i said i did i'm going on and on to say that i can but in the video where you keep saying that why why though is there is there is a puppet of the united states but what about the more than 50 other countries that support him that recognize him as the interim president of this country countries that like canada like germany like france that do not particularly i'm not exactly known for taking orders from president donald trump how do you explain this you know you're going to get what i contracted to go and do most i know it all but what i want us when we see a view then. when the economy to seal. them
1:33 am
with them and thousands of those numbers look at the oh i don't know what up in the pan the end will now know it'll be i guess i got by them yet in the conflict in the noise from madison. proper many throat read the fine alysia. american on a comment said on the road out of that meeting today and there are going to say the net again that idea the motor thought it will go away but it's almost what if we are going to say i want you know and we want a job loss and then he got on a committee said on day. one we need to let us when i had a daughter that a drain on the seafront all of us alone or go back and we had no what i got a better noise when we had and washington anybody warning sam but i caught a boat i feel it but if you're in a political angle we have no law my important and i guess i like in washington but i get into but if you and daughters of by the end don't they mind what i say and they don't want going on monday and if you get em on the nepali so all the problems of it is the economic collapse in this country the.
