TEGUCIGALPA – More than 100 members of former Honduran President Mel Zelaya’s opposition LIBRE party gathered in Tegucigalpa to remember late Cuban leader Fidel Castro.
The ceremony was held at the statue of Cuban independence leader Jose Marti in Tegucigalpa, where Zelaya delivered an address praising Castro’s revolutionary accomplishments.
The government on Saturday expressed its “most sincere” condolences over the death of Castro.
“The people and government of the Republic of Honduras express their most sincere and heartfelt condolences to the people and government of the Republic of Cuba over the death of former President Fidel Castro,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Castro, who inspired generations of revolutionaries around the world, died on Friday night at the age of 90.
President Juan Orlando Hernandez completed a two-day official visit last week to Cuba, where he met with his counterpart, Raul Castro, to discuss bilateral relations and efforts to bolster trade, cooperation and investment.
Cuba and Honduras established diplomatic relations in 1903, broke them in 1961 and re-established ties in 2002.
