In Support of Honduras - One of the topics discussed during the meeting of Heads of State in the region was the normalization of Honduras in the SICA. In this regard, the president of El Salvador, Mauricio Funes, said the normalization of Honduras in the Central American Integration System is coming soon. The Salvadoran president said at the Third Summit of Heads of State, and the SICA summit, Honduras has shown their commitment to democracy. "What we have asked all the presidents of the region is that President Lobo to show his commitment to democracy and institution building, to which he committed when he was a candidate and then later as both the president-elect and the constitutionally elected President of Honduras. This he has shown," he said. Meanwhile, the president of Honduras, Porfirio Lobo, said the country's return to the SICA is a matter of time. "In the end, sooner rather than later we'll be all together," the Honduran leader said. Lobo claimed he would continue to fight because one or two sectors are highly polarized, but noted that fortunately they are very small, and they do not reflect the majority of the popular will.
During his speech at the opening ceremony of the XXXV Summit of Heads of State and Government of SICA, the Panamanian leader took stock of the six months that Panama has had the presidency pro tempore of SICA, and the successes in the strengthening of the fight against drug trafficking and illicit arms trafficking, criminal gangs and other security threats. Today the SICA conference will continue in its second day, during which Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi will address the group. (La Estrella)
