A/DCM spoke with Honduran Vice Foreign Minister (VFM) Anibal
Quinones at 0900 October 17 about the Central American
Presidents' call for a special OAS Permanent Council session
to demonstrate support for the elected government in
Nicaragua. VFM Quinones welcomed U.S. support and urged the
U.S. to be in contact with other countries in the region.
A/DCM explained that U.S. was seeking support for the Central
American Presidents' initiative in other capitals. Quinones
said he would relay our support to the President and be in
touch if the Government of Honduras had any additional ideas
on how the OAS could support President Bolanos in Nicarauga.
