Endorsed by the 121st IPU Assembly
On the following day, I declared, in my capacity as President of the IPU, that any act designed to overturn a government by unconstitutional means is completely unacceptable. I am well aware that in so doing, I had your full support.
Since then, much has been done by bodies such as the Organization of American States to set up a dialogue between the representation of the constitutional President, Mr. Manuel Zelaya, and the de facto President, Mr. Roberto Micheletti. Unfortunately, these attempts have not borne fruit and the dialogue remains at a standstill.
I am sure this Assembly will join me in calling for the immediate restoration of the rule of law in Honduras. By the same token, we call for the reinstatement of the constitutionally elected President of Honduras, Mr. Manuel Zelaya.
