U.S. Offers Venezuela Sanctions Relief in Return for Transitional Rule

Under the terms of the proposal, a council made up of representatives from both Mr. Maduro’s government and the opposition led by U.S.-backed Juan Guaidó would form a transitional government until an election is held later in the year.
