Remarks as Prepared for Delivery
Ceremony of Investiture of the Verification Commission for
Implementation of the Guaymuras Accord

Tegucigalpa, Honduras
November 3, 2009

We congratulate the Honduran people for reaching an historic agreement last week.

The negotiators from both sides, and their leaders, deserve credit for putting their country first and looking forward.

The United States is proud to have worked with the OAS to support our Honduran friends as they reached the Guaymuras Accord — and we are pleased to participate in this verification commission to help ensure that the agreement is implemented fully and on time.

As an important early step, the formation of the Government of National Unity and Reconciliation by November 5 is crucial.

Thank you!
