OAS Delegation to Honduras
Little has been done to undo the coup d’etat that rocked Honduras over a month ago. Now, the Organization of American States, hoping for new elections and the return of President Manuel Zelaya, is sending a delegation to the country to try to negotiate an end to the crisis.
Wait, before you go…
A high-level delegation is going to Honduras to seek a negotiated end to the country’s political crisis, the Organisation of American States says.
The foreign ministers of six OAS states will arrive on Tuesday and hold talks with the Honduran interim government.
They hope it will accept a plan under which ousted President Manuel Zelaya would return and elections be held.
Mr Zelaya was sent into exile after a coup in June amid a power struggle over his plans for constitutional change.
