Brazil Says It Didn’t Get All It Wanted in Honduras, But It Was Still Helpful

Zelaya in Brazilian embassy Brazil's Foreign minister, Celso Amorim, said this Monday, December 7, that while Zelaya has not been returned to the presidency, as Brazil wanted, the Brazilian government was able to facilitate the dialogue in that country.

"Maybe the dialogue has not produced all the results, but there was some dialogue that, maybe will allow, in the future, a reconciliation of the Honduran people and if Brazil hadn't provided shelter to President Zelaya, everything would be interrupted."

Amorim's statement was made at his arrival in Montevideo to attend Mercosur's 38th Summit.

According to the minister, Brazil is in no embarrassing situation for continuing to shelter Zelaya at the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa. Instead, he said, Brazil reinforced the principle of democracy on the continent with its posture.

When asked if Brazil will continue sheltering Zelaya, when his mandate officially runs out at the end of next month, Amorim changed the subject and said that perhaps the situation will be solved before then.

Amorim was also asked if there is no contradiction in defending the return of Zelaya to power under the pretense of democracy, while supporting the Cuban political regime.

According to the Foreign minister, you cannot compare the two situations. "With regard to Cuba, there was a unanimous decision of the OAS (Organization of American States), which has withdrawn the suspension to Cuba. As for Honduras, there was a coup that took place recently, while the democratic charter that Honduras signed was fully in force, a coup that we condemned with all the other countries of the OAS. "
