U.S.-Russia talks on Venezuela positive but no agreement on Maduro -Abrams

ROME, March 19 (Reuters) - Talks between the United States and Russia over the crisis in Venezuela were positive and substantive but the two sides were still divided over the legitimacy of President Nicolas Maduro, U.S. special representative Elliott Abrams said on Tuesday. "No, we did not come to a meeting of minds, but I think the talks were positive in the sense that both sides emerged with a better understanding of the other's views," Abrams said, adding that both sides had agreed on the depth of the crisis.
