the word "at" When President Maduro calls for a dialogue with the U.S. president and an exchange of ambassadors, he should focus instead on a dialogue with the Venezuelan people, because that is what is at issue here. Is the sentence "what is at issue here" right? Should "at" be placed after "issue"?

"At issue" is a set phrase meaning under discussion, or in dispute. It means the dialogue with the Venezuelan people is what's important, not dialogue with the US president.
