  1.   October 5, "El Heraldo" a moderate Tegucigalpa-based 
      daily, reported on remarks by the Minister of Foreign 
      Affairs, Guillermo Perez Cadalzo, regarding Honduran support 
      for a U.S. invasion of Iraq. 
 
      "If the United States gets United Nations support, 
      Honduras will respect and support a decision to 
      invade Iraq. At the present time, the United States 
      is trying to convince its principal allies in the 
      Security Council of the need of an invasion but it 
      has not yet gotten the necessary support. 
 
      "This matter is being debated in the Security Council 
      and whatever decision is made there, we will support 
      totally". 
 
 
Pierce.
