MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday he hoped Norway-brokered talks between Venezuela’s government and the opposition would normalize the situation in country and bring an end to political turmoil.

Russia, like China and Cuba, is a staunch ally of Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro, while the opposition’s Juan Guaido is backed by the United States and many other western countries.
