The Honduran government has requested that Venezuela withdraw its embassy staff from Tegucigalpa. This request comes as a result of the intervention of President Hugo Chavez in the internal affairs of the country.
Given that the government of Venezuela has made threats to our forces, has been meddling in affairs exclusive to Honduras, has disregarded our sovereignty, we respectfully request the removal of all ... its diplomatic administrative staff in the service of the Venezuelan Embassy here in Honduras.
- Martha Lorena Alvarado, Deputy Foreign Minister of Honduras
