Press Release

For Immediate Release:

Miami, FL - Congressmen Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) issued the following joint statement today concerning the agreement reached in Honduras last night:

“This agreement is an extraordinary example of political maturity and of profound respect for the sovereignty of the Honduran people.  Even though, in a shameful and unwarranted manner, the international community attempted to undermine the democratic institutions and constitution of Honduras, this agreement paves the way for the world to recognize the upcoming Presidential elections, remove all sanctions against Honduras and not interfere with that noble country’s people’s right to decide their own fate.  We commend President Micheletti, his government and all the democratic institutions of Honduras for standing firm on behalf of freedom and the Rule of Law”.
