Uribe Receives Award and City Key

The National Congress honored the former president of Colombia, Alvaro Uribe, with the Order of the Grand Cross Gold Plaque for his work for democracy in Honduras.

“I feel very overwhelmed and express from my heart, my gratitude for this generous award from the Congress of Honduras,” Uribe said after receiving the plaque and medal that was presented to him from the Honduran Parliament.

The former Colombian president also received the key to the capital city, Tegucigalpa, from Mayor Ricardo Álvarez Arias.

Following a meeting yesterday with President Porfirio Lobo Sosa, Uribe welcomed the efforts of the Honduran government to achieve national economic growth.

Uribe also said that, “The world is overdue to acknowledge that Pepe Lobo was elected as president in a democracy, a process that was never questioned.”
