The people are not interested at all in a constituent assembly. I think we Hondurans are smart enough to realize where the bad is and where the good is. There is a group of communists who want to seize power in the nation and a group of politicians who intend to continue the game that benefits the people of ALBA and, especially, the interests of Chavez. I do not support any constituent assembly, no matter how they paint it.
Hopefully there is no commitment that [President Porfirio Lobo] has made with Chavez, a dictator in his country and, logically, [a person who] does not bring positive consequences for any country in Latin America that has close ties with him. We have seen how he operates. We all know that Chavez does not take one step without having already calculated his political interests.
I'm not inclined to visit the U.S. [where Mr. Micheletti was invited to testify before Congress] simply to avoid being in the same room with [U.S. Ambassador to Honduras] Hugo Llorens, a disrespectful man, a liar, and someone who I think is even more communist than all others. I have many truths to tell because we have learned through WikiLeaks of Llorens's inventions, which did so much damage to Honduras in the past and continues to do so now.
When asked what importance the return of [exiled former President] Manuel Zelaya might have for Honduras, Mr. Micheletti said, "Who is that? I do not remember him. I do not know him. I really believe his presence in the country is irrelevant."
