The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, met this morning with the ambassadors of the European Union to Mexico, in the context of his participation in the “Our Democracy” Forum organized by the OAS, UNDP, and the IFE, taking place in the Mexican capital.

Insulza reviewed the main political events in the region, making specific reference to the situation in Honduras and Ecuador. The stagnation in the process of integration of Europe and Latin America also was one of the subjects of the meeting, as well as the setback caused by organized crime in the strengthening of democracy in the region.

Insulza made special reference to the importance of European cooperation in the funding of top OAS projects in the areas of democracy and development being implemented throughout the continent.
