Summit Does Not Recognize Elections in Honduras
ESTORIL, Portugal - The hard-line
stance taken by Brazil, Argentina and most other Latin American
countries has clashed with U.S. efforts to push for international
recognition of the elections organized Sunday by the de facto regime in
power in Honduras since the Jun. 28 coup.
Costa Rica, Colombia, Panama and Peru, the only countries
in the region that called for the results of the elections to be
accepted, ran up against Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da
Silva's emphatic "no, no and no; categorically no."
