Connie Mack, U.S. Representative (R, FL)
A group of lawmakers led by Republican Connie Mack, will travel to Honduras this weekend to express to the Honduran government its support for a peaceful solution.
On this first trip to Honduras by U.S. congressmen after the events of June 28, the lawmakers are scheduled to meet with in Tegucigalpa with representatives of Roberto Micheletti's government and other public authorities.
"I hope to get to Honduras to hear directly from members of the government of Honduras about the political situation, as well as the progress of negotiations in Costa Rica," said Mack.
"It's important to remember that the departure of Manuel Zelaya was not a coup. The Supreme Court of Honduras, the Attorney General, Congress and the Honduran people did the right thing to stand up to Zelaya when he usurped the law and attempted to destroy the Constitution, "he said.
"At this time of turmoil, the people of Honduras deserve to know that United States and other freedom-loving nations around the world and want to support a peaceful and legal solution," he added.
