Classified By: POLITICAL COUNSELOR FRANCISCO PALMIERI; REASONS 1.5 (B) 
AND (D). 
 
1. (U) PolOffs delivered ref A nonpaper on the Honduran 
straight baseline claim to MFA Director General of Foreign 
Policy Mario Fortin September 25.  There was no immediate 
official reaction from the MFA. 
 
2. (C) Informally, Fortin was not surprised to receive these 
U.S. views.  He almost, but not quite, sheepishly 
acknowledged the expansive nature of the Honduran claim.  He 
said that he would pass the nonpaper on to the maritime 
borders unit of the MFA.  He queried  whether or not the two 
sides would meet again in Washington or Tegucigalpa to 
discuss the issue.
