Micheletti was disappointed in Insulza’s comments this morning at the OAS headquarters in the United States, where Insulza noted that there is a process of stagnation in the negotiations, in part by the “Micheletti Government’s attempt to reach an agreement on the validity of acts that occurred on June 28th…”
Insulza called on the representatives of Micheletti to withdraw the validation of the actions committed on June 28th because there will never be agreement on this issue.
“This is something I will never agree to. For the international community, what happened was illegal, improper, and not legitimate. While for others, in Honduras, it was valid,” he said.
The statement, distributed by Micheletti’s commission participating in the dialog, adds that the comments of Insulza have taken place when least needed, and represent an inappropriate intervention in the dialogue.
In today’s session of the OAS Permanent Council, Insulza did say that despite the deadlock, “neither side has mentioned the possibility of abandoning the negotiations,” and also stressed that “dialogue is obviously very important to Hondurans “.
The current Honduran government reminded the Secretary General to “keep his promise not to intervene in this internal matter which will be resolved at the negotiating table by Hondurans”. Both parties have submitted proposals that are outside the margins of the San Jose Accord, but “Both parties agree that this document provides the basis for the talks we have today, but the solution to this crisis will be resolved in Honduras.”
