The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, arrived in Tegucigalpa this afternoon accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Relations of Colombia, María Ángela Holguín. They both visited the Presidential House, where they were hosted by the President of Honduras, Porfirio Lobo.

Secretary General Insulza is in the Honduran capital to hold conversations with the Honduran Government related to the return of Honduras to the OAS. At the heart of the meeting, which was also attended by Honduran Foreign Minister Mario Canahuati, were the efforts made by OAS Member States, and by the current Government of President Lobo, aimed at normalizing the internal situation of Honduras, whose Government was suspended after the Coup d’Etat on June 28, 2009.
