DomRep leader urges CAFTA suspension for Honduras

DomRep leader urges CAFTA suspension for Honduras

Dominican President Leonel Fernandez says Honduras could be suspended from the Central American Free Trade Agreement as a way of pressuring President Manuel Zelaya's return to power.
Zelaya was deposed and exiled on June 28 amid accusations by his opponents that he wanted to overturn the constitutional provision limiting Honduran presidents to a single term. He denies that was his goal.
The Dominican leader made the comments Wednesday at a news conference during a regional conference.
Fernandez said the Honduran presidential crisis might be resolved in a few weeks if Honduras were suspended from CAFTA _ a pact among Central American nations, the Dominican Republic, and the U.S. that lowers tariffs and trade barriers.
