Kelly: Dec. 2 congressional vote not inconsistent with agreement

Washington, United States. The decision by the Honduran Congress to vote on the return of Manuel Zelaya until after the elections of November 29 does not contradict the agreement reached to resolve the political crisis, said the spokesman of U.S. State Department, Ian Kelly.

"Since the agreement does not set deadlines for this vote by Congress, holding the vote on December 2 is not necessarily inconsistent with the agreement," said Kelly told reporters.

Meanwhile the U.S. envoy to Honduras, Craig Kelly, reiterated on Wednesday [U.S.] support for the elections of 29 November as "part of the solution" to the crisis.

According to the U.S. envoy, "no one has the right to take away from the Honduran people the right to vote and elect their leaders."
