State Secretary Hillary Clinton announced that the President of Costa Rica, Oscar Arias, will serve as international mediator in the Honduran political crisis.
Tuesday, July 7, 2009
The announcement was made after a private meeting with Manuel Zelaya, Honduras ousted president, exiled from the country on June 28.
"If elections undertaken in Latin America by dictatorial regimes had been invalid, there wouldn't have been transitions to democracy".
The Washington Post: "The only good way out of the Honduran crisis is to go forward with the presidential election scheduled for Nov. 29."
Brazil won for maximum hypocrisy, United States for indecision, and the OAS for lack of impartiality.
The editorial at Nacion.com remarks: "if all that is left is poses, angry reactions and more inflexibility, Zelaya's presence could be the trigger that was needed for real violence".
