NEW YORK, USA -- The United Nations on Thursday expressed concern about the latest developments in Venezuela, calling on the government and the opposition to address the country’s challenges for the benefit of the people.

Specifically, he noted dialogue around critical issues that are already agreed to be placed on the agenda, namely the balance of power among branches of the state, the electoral calendar, human rights, truth and justice and the socioeconomic situation.
