democracy November 18 to MFA DG for Foreign Policy AMB Mario 
Fortin.  Fortin told PolOff that the GOH did not have any 
response to the demarche, other than to note that the GOH 
supported the USG's position on Venezuelan democracy outlined 
in the main demarche points. 
 
2. (C) Comment.  Post notes that while in general supportive 
of the USG's approach on Venezuela, the GOH is unlikely to 
take a leading role on the issue and its public statements 
and policies will likely be influenced by those of other 
Central American countries.  End Comment.
