OAS Delegation Leaves Honduras Empty-Handed
Foreign ministers from the Organization of American States ended their two-day visit to Honduras without reaching an accord with the current Honduran government to reinstate ousted President Mel Zelaya.

TEGUCIGALPA – Foreign ministers from the Organization of American States ended their two-day visit to Honduras without reaching an accord with the current Honduran government to reinstate ousted President Mel Zelaya.

“The commission regrets that on this occasion it was not possible to obtain support for the San Jose Accord,” said Costa Rican Foreign Minister Bruno Stagno, upon reading the statement issued at the end of the mission.

The San Jose Accord is the set of proposals put forward by Costa Rican President Oscar Arias in his capacity as mediator between Zelaya and the post-coup regime led by Roberto Micheletti.

The OAS delegation issued a call “to all sectors of Honduran society to favorably consider subscribing to the San Jose Accord which ... contains the elements necessary for dialogue and reconciliation, for the restoration of the constitutional order and the state of law.”

“And for the prompt reintegration of Honduras into the hemispheric community,” it added.

“The commission considers essential the prompt return to democratic normality that guarantees all Hondurans security, prosperity and development,” the OAS foreign ministers said.

Shortly before wrapping up their visit, the delegation met at the presidential residence with Micheletti, who reiterated his rejection of reinstalling Zelaya as president and said he was ready to confront the “serious consequences” that that would have for his government.

During their visit, the OAS delegation met with local authorities, as well as members of political, social, business, religious and other sectors, some of whom support the Micheletti government and some Zelaya.

Besides Stagno, the delegation includes the foreign ministers of Argentina, Jorge Taiana; Jamaica, Kenneth Baugh; Mexico, Patricia Espinosa, and Panama, Juan Carlos Varela, as well as Canada’s top diplomat for the Americas, Peter Kent, and OAS Secretary-General Jose Miguel Insulza.

The Micheletti government says Zelaya’s ouster was not a coup, insisting that the soldiers who dragged him from the presidential palace on June 28 were simply enforcing a Supreme Court ban on the president’s planned non-binding plebiscite on the idea of revising the constitution.
