Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó has said he would consider an amnesty for President Nicolás Maduro if he cedes power, the BBC reports.
In an interview, Mr Guaidó - who declared himself interim president on Wednesday - said he was reaching out to all sectors including the military to end the crisis.
It comes amid US efforts to block Mr Maduro's revenue streams.
Mr Maduro has cut ties with the US and has so far been backed by the military.
However the international community is divided on whether to recognise his government.
On Wednesday Mr Guaidó - who is leader of Venezuela's elected National Congress - said he was the legitimate president.
The US, more than a dozen Latin American countries, as well as Canada and the UK, have backed his claim.
But Russia has condemned foreign support for Mr Guaidó, saying it violated international law and was a "direct path to bloodshed". China, Mexico and Turkey also back Mr Maduro.
