Honduras reinstated as full member of SICA.
Political victory for honduran democratic leader Porfirio Lopez
A special summit of the Central American Integration System decided to invite Honduras to rejoin/reinstate the central american organization. Honduras was never expelled from SICA. This decission was announced by the President of El Salvador Mauricio Funes. The only country absent at that meeting was Nicaragua. After a meeting with the heads of the russian puppet regimes of Abjasia and South Ossetia , the President Daniel Ortega in a press conference considered “ridiculous and absurd” the decision adopted in El Salvador to reinstate Honduras in the Central American Integration System (SICA). Apart of El Salvador, another SICA members participated in the summit like Guatemala, Panama and Costa Rica.
“We signed the resolution that allows Honduras full reincorporation to SICA”, Funes told the press at the end of the meeting with the other three Heads of States, according to news received from El Salvador. According to nicaraguan sources, Ortega emphasized that Nicaragua did not attend the meeting because it was aware that the decision to incorporate Honduras was being promoted by United States.
The SICA focused on security issues. They leaders assembled in San Salvador Tuesday to step up cooperation at a time when concern grows—particularly in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras—over the growing strength of organized crime. Salvadoran President Mauricio Funes called the extraordinary meeting of the Central American Integration System (SICA) to address five topics: security, social policy, climate change and natural disaster prevention, economic integration, and regional institutionalism. But two of the more pressing topics on the agenda were how to stem spiraling gang violence and bringing Honduras back into SICA’s fold.
The meeting counted among its attendees OAS Secretary-General José Miguel Insulza, World Bank President Robert Zoellick, and the Inter-American Development Bank’s head Luis Alberto Moreno.
