Paris, June 28, 2009

France utterly condemns the coup d’état which has just occurred in Honduras.

The arrest of diplomats and their forced expulsion seriously violate the Vienna Convention. They are unacceptable.

Constitutional order must be re-established as quickly as possible. France urges all the parties involved to act with due regard for the principles and values of democracy.

Indeed, Honduras’s future is inseparable from democracy and any development at variance with its standards would be a grave step backwards for that country./.
