Colombia's Uribe visits Honduras to restore ties

Colombia's Uribe visits Honduras to restore ties

Colombian President Alvaro Uribe is in Honduras meeting with newly inaugurated president Porfirio Lobo, a first step toward repairing international ties that were fractured in a June coup.
The Organization of American States cut off diplomatic ties to Honduras in the summer after then-President Manuel Zelaya was forced into exile, and millions of dollars in foreign aid was frozen. Uribe's visit is part of Lobo's efforts to restore those ties.
Other countries appear to support normalized relations as well: The presidents of Taiwan, Panama and the Dominican Republic attended Lobo's inauguration Wednesday and the U.S. ambassador to Honduras says the new leader should be able to name an ambassador to Washington in the near future.
