Honduras Talks Get Lost in Costa Rica
Posted on Jul 20, 2009
Honduras’ coup-empowered interim government refuses to discuss any deal that involves the return of ousted President Manuel Zelaya, pictured at right, despite overwhelming international and regional pressure. But Costa Rica’s Nobel Prize-winning President Oscar Arias isn’t giving up for fear that failure could lead to civil war.
Mr Arias has warned of possible civil war if the talks fail and urged both sides to continue.
“My conscience tells me that I cannot give up and must continue working for at least three more days and that is what I propose to do,” he said.
