A group of representatives from the Honduran interim government traveled on Monday to Washington, the United States, to have a dialogue with the Organization of American States (OAS) seeking a solution to the current political crisis in Honduras.
The interim government's Vice Foreign Minister Martha Lorena Alvarado announced the conformation of this delegation on Sunday, in a message to the nation.
Reading a prepared text, Alvarado said that "Honduras makes its best vows for keeping a good faith dialogue and for not having acts or situation who could set on risk the social peace of the republic and compromise the efforts during the conversations."
The local radio HRN said on Monday morning that among the members of the delegation are former Honduran foreign ministers Guillermo Perez Cadalso and Leonidas Rosa Bautista, as well as the presidential candidate from the Christian Democracy, Felicito Avila.
The Honduran ambassador in Washington, Roberto Flores Bermudez, told local media that he will join the delegation and that the OAS has accepted the dialogue.
Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was driven out of the country on June 28 after hooded and heavily-armed soldiers seized him from bed at the presidential palace and forced him into exile in Costa Rica.
On Sunday Zelaya attempted to land in Tegucigalpa's Toncontin airport, while his followers clashed with the army and the police in front of the airport. Two people were killed and tens of others were injured in the clash. Source: Xinhua
