A flurry of diplomatic activity is under way to lay the ground work for fresh elections in Venezuela and resolve the nation’s grinding crisis.

A mission from the International Contact Group, an initiative comprising eight EU member states and four Latin American countries, arrived in Caracas to present proposals to members of President Nicolas Maduro’s autocratic regime and the opposition Thursday and Friday. Separately, both government and Juan Guaido, head of the powerless legislature who says he is the nation’s rightful president, have sent envoys to Oslo for talks at the invitation of Norway.
