MFA Director General of Foreign Policy Mario Fortin told 
PolOffs September 25 that contrary to earlier indications 
from the GOH (ref A), Honduras will not issue a statement at 
this time supporting the USG position on Iraq.  Fortin said 
that the MFA believes that the USG needs to work harder on 
gaining multilateral support at the United Nations.  It 
appears that without UNSC or Rio Group consensus the MFA is 
not yet willing to issue a public GOH statement backing U.S. 
policy on Iraq.
