Statement by Benita Ferrero-Waldner on the situation in Honduras
Benita Ferrero-Waldner, Member of the EC in charge of External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy, was asked about the conflict in Honduras, during the press conference presenting the Communication of the Commission "The EU and Latin America: Global players in partnership" aimed to renew the policy designed to strengthen the EU/Latin America Strategic Partnership.
She said that the most important now was to try to get a solution. She added that for that a dialogue and a political solution are needed and what President Óscar Arias has done would be a good basis to find a solution. Benita Ferrero-Waldner also remarked that it would be very useful if the Ambassadors were reinstated there, and if the government of Honduras could have a more constructive attitude. SHOTLIST
