Martinelli Cancelled Lobo's Dominican Trip

Porfirio Lobo Sosa had planned on meeting with the president of the Dominican Republic, Leonel Fernandez, on Thursday this week, but abruptly announced the cancellation of that trip yesterday. Lobo Sosa told Honduran media today that Ricardo Martinelli, president of Panama, told him the trip was cancelled.
"Martinelli made the decision in light of not having implemented all of the Tegucigalpa-San Jose Accord."
Lobo announced last night that after meeting with Arias and Martinelli, he understood that there was no point in continuing his international trips seeking recognition without having complied with the Accord.

Lobo indicated that he hoped that long before January 27 there would be a government of national unity that was "not of one, or the other", that is neither of Zelaya or Micheletti.
