Ladies and gentlemen of the international community:
Honduras is a small country but with dignity.
We condemn the intervention to surrender the Constitutional Government of Honduras led by Roberto Micheletti. You have no right to impose your views on how to govern this country. Respect our right to self-determination.
Honduras is a country of laws. The constitutional order is not broken. If there was an imposed reinstallation of Zelaya in Presidency that would be a breach of constitutional order.
We are not going to be cornered with threats of isolation. Stop asking us to dialogue with Mr. Zelaya, We exhausted all opportunities of dialogue with Mr. Zelaya. This is the reason of his unfortunate outcome. Mr. Zelaya is a very stubborn person.
You ignore the administrative chaos left by Mr. Zelaya. The damage of this administration was worse than a hurricane. We prefer to suffer international isolation for the remaining seven months until a new elected government before Zelaya’s return as a hurricane to leave our country in ruins.
Mr. Zelaya wanted to impose the twenty-first century totalitarianism through a new constitution drawn up according to his whims. We prefer to be a little poorer than slaves of Hugo Chavez.
