“The lack of satisfactory results using the diplomatic approach could force the Honduran resistance - demanding the restitution of the rule of law- to pursue other ways different from the civility and good behavior they have used until now.”
This information was provided by the Venezuelan Ambassador to the Organization of American States (OAS) Roy Chaderton Matos, during the handing out of the oral report regarding the visit of OAS Foreign Affairs ministers to Honduras.
"If their patience and civil behavior has not been reattributed after these diplomatic actions, the Honduran resistance is being forced to eventually pursue other approaches," he said.
He also pointed out that the putschists are trying to gain time in order to reach the election date and wait for the international community to legalize the electoral process.
The next election process in Honduras, in his opinion, is already "stained and corrupted... We have to reject it and categorically decide about the next election."
"This is the history of a foretold delay," he said and added that "according to the OAS actions, there are countries that independently and in a sovereign manner make decisions that help with the solution of this political crisis in Honduras.”
Regarding the Honduran political crisis and the restitution of the rule of law "something very important is being tested, not just effectiveness, but the OAS strength and the Democratic Chart and all the actors that comprise it."
