From the Document: "The political situation in Venezuela is at a stalemate. High-level military leaders did not back interim President Juan Guaidó's April 30, 2019, call for an uprising against Nicolás Maduro. Clashes between pro-Guaidó protesters and security forces resulted in four deaths and hundreds of injuries. While some observers maintain that Maduro is weak politically, others fear a prolonged, potentially violent standoff between the respective supporters of Maduro and Guaidó. Both sides sent envoys to Norway in May for exploratory talks, but actions taken against the opposition by Maduro could hinder a negotiated solution to the crisis."
