Insulza told reporters Sunday that the meeting, devoted exclusively to Honduras, will also consider the decision of the U.S. Congress on the request of returning deposed President Manuel Zelaya.
“On December 4th, the Permanent Council of the OAS will meet to review the situation after the elections and the decision of the Congress of Honduras on December 2,” Insulza said at the headquarters of the XIX Ibero-American summit, in a luxury spa hotel in Estoril, 25 km west of Lisbon.
Insulza said he is following “very closely” the development of the Honduran elections.
Asked about the support for recognition of the election expressed by Costa Rica, Panama and Peru, Insulza said, “I understand that nobody is considering recognizing the de facto government, that governments are talking about after January 27th”, when the new government takes over.
The OAS suspended Hondurs after the coup last June, ignoring their request for withdrawal, but since has failed to reach common positions on the crisis in the country.
