The following is the full text of the resolution adopted by the XXXVII OAS Special General Assembly:
RESOLUTION ON THE SUSPENSION OF THE RIGHT OF HONDURAS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE OAS
THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY,
DEEPLY CONCERNED about the worsening of the current political crisis in the Republic of Honduras resulting from the coup d’état against the constitutional government of President José Manuel Zelaya Rosales, as well as his arbitrary detention and expulsion from the country, which produced an unconstitutional alteration of the democratic order;
REAFFIRMING the importance of strict respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, and the principle of nonintervention in the internal affairs of other states;
HAVING RECEIVED the report of the Secretary General on the diplomatic initiatives taken in accordance with Article 20 of the Inter-American Democratic Charter, aimed at restoring democracy and the rule of law as well as reinstating President José Manuel Zelaya Rosales; and noting that these initiatives have been unsuccessful;
NOTING that the regime that emerged from the coup d’état has refused to comply with the provisions of resolution AG/RES. 1 (XXXVII-E/09), adopted by the OAS General Assembly at its thirty-seventh special session, on July 1, 2009; and
HAVING TAKEN a vote among the member states pursuant to the provisions of Article 21 of the Inter-American Democratic Charter,
1. To suspend the Honduran state from the exercise of its right to participate in the Organization of American States, in accordance with Article 21 of the Inter-American Democratic Charter. The suspension shall take effect immediately.

No such initiative will imply recognition of the regime that emerged from this interruption of the constitutional order.
