President Nicolás Maduro on Monday announced that he will meet with the new owners of private news TV channel Globovision, a strong critic of the government.

"The new owners of Globovisión asked me (for a meeting). I will do it. I do not know them; I do not know who they are," said the president at the Miraflores presidential palace.

Regarding his meeting on Monday with the owners of private TV stations Venevisión and Televén, Gustavo Cisneros and Omar Camero, respectively, Maduro said the meeting was intended at the "construction of a new television in Venezuela for peace, to sanitize fascism in our society. It is my duty as head of state."

"I will not accept anyone promoting fascism in Venezuela," he stressed.
