Partially defeated by a hostile Reagan administration, the Contadora Group was a stepping stone to successful negotiations that followed. Now that intra-regional diplomacy might be back, we recollect a milestone where Venezuela played a leading role
Nicolás Maduro left the building. Sadly, he’ll be back. We’ll be updating throughout the day, so check back. Feel free to share any thoughts and suggestions in the comments.

Someone will come out to say, this is not what Lula meant. That he’s just pointing Maduro in the right direction, but he’s just looking to minimize the “Venezuelan dictatorship narrative” at the expense of all the victims of human rights violations.
First trip in years
Maduro hasn’t been traveling much lately, except for the occasional Cuba escapade (one imagines). However, the ruler of Venezuela just landed in Brazil for Lula’s Isla Presidencial initiative, a presidential retreat in Brasilia that should take place on May 30th. The agenda? South America’s hot mess. We’re not betting that anything productive will come out of it, but it’s interesting to see how the shifting alliances have made Maduro more comfortable.
