HAVANA, June 28 (PL). — Cuba today urged international organizations and Honduran public opinion to condemn the coup d’état
taking place in that Central American country. Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla called on the United Nations,
the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), the Rio Group and the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS)
to demand respect for constitutional guarantees in Honduras. Cuba considers the coup d’état taking place in that country to
be brutal and criminal, and demands the restoration to office of President Manuel Zelaya, and demands guaranteed protection
of the life of Foreign Minister Patricia Rodas.
