The de facto chief of the Honduran armed forces, Romero Vasquez Velasquez, said on Tuesday that the solution to the political crisis in his country is near and urged the conflicting sides to continue their dialogue.

"We as an institution have the obligation to support our superiors in this dialogue and the result of it," Velasquez told local media.

"I see that we are reaching a solution fast, which all of us are waiting," he added.

According to Velasquez, the solution could be achieved as long as there is a disposition from both sides to dialogue.
