Military urges Dialogue

The spokesperson for the Minister of Defense, colonel Ramiro Archaga, said that the military applauds and advocates the initiation of a dialogue for the purpose of resolving the crisis that wears the country. He said that he hopes that authorities can reach a consensus within the law to return peace and tranquility to the country.

"I believe that no Honduran wants to be in these situations, even less ourselves [the military and police] in places of hostility, but suddenly we are in this situation."

He said he hoped that the Honduran family knows that this leads nowhere, that the country needs work, that the saddest part of this is the wounds that remain.

"We are not going to kill anyone; we're human beings, with families, no soldier is going to lend himself to this and there are those who for a moment of little tolerance would do something like that."
