Uruguay, Mexico disavow de facto Honduran gov’t

From Xinhuanet.com:

MONTEVIDEO, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) — Uruguayan President Tabare Vazquez and his Mexican counterpart Felipe Calderon disavowed the de facto Honduran government in a joint declaration Friday.

During their meeting in Montevideo, the two presidents issued a declaration stating that the Honduran “constitutional government is led by President Manuel Zelaya.” The declaration also expressed their refusal to recognize any government that resulted from the disruption of constitutional order.

Zelaya was ousted by the Honduran army on June 28 and flown out of the country.

On a two-day visit to Uruguay, Calderon joined Vazquez in his support for the San Jose Agreement, an initiative proposed by Costa Rican President Oscar Arias, who is acting as a mediator in the Honduran conflict. Calderon and Vazquez called the agreement an important proposal to find a peaceful and negotiated solution to the crisis.
