Mexico renews diplomatic ties with HondurasAugust 1st, 2010 - 5:14 am ICT by IANS
Mexico City, Aug 1 (IANS/EFE) The Mexican government has said that its ambassador to Tegucigalpa will return to Honduras next week, as it wants to renew diplomatic ties with the Central American nation.
Saturday’s announcement came hours after the Chilean government decided to send back its ambassador to that country.
Mexico’s Foreign Relations Secretariat (SRE) said there was a “significant progress” in the situation in Honduras after the June 2009 coup against the then president Manuel Zelaya. Porfirio Lobo is the current president of Honduras.
The SRE said in a statement: “With this decision Mexico normalises its diplomatic relations with Honduras and hopes that this measure will help promote understanding, cooperation, security and strengthening of democratic institutions in the region.”
