According to Zelaya, he is seeking to repeal the Constitution because the international community failed to reinstate him to office. Zelaya’s request has drawn attention because analysts say it is in tune with the intentions of invading Venezuela and Nicaragua, which the Honduran army considers an obstacle to its expansionist plans.
The President responded to Zelaya’s comments yesterday after taking part in celebrating the 36th anniversary of the founding of the air base Hernan Acosta Mejia, with the Minister of Defense, Adolfo Leonel Sevilla, and Chief of State, Major Romeo Vasquez Velasquez.
“I do not think there’s anything that is above our right to govern ourselves internally; I would suggest the former President Zelaya calm down and stop bothering Honduras,” said President Lobo.
During the special event, Lobo agreed to introduce technology and modernize the installation of the Air Force of Honduras (FAH) [Fuerza Aerea de Honduras] because of the importance it represents. It is, “The entrance and exit point of dignitaries, VIPs and international aid.”
