The Trump administration's effort to combat violence and poverty in Central America will not mean greater militarization in Honduras, the country's president, Juan Orlando Hernandez, said.
Under a plan formulated by Donald Trump's chief of staff John Kelly when he was secretary of Homeland Security, the United States is seeking to shore up Central America by financing development projects.
Non-governmental organizations have voiced concern that the plan, pitched as an effort to boost Central American economic growth, could instead herald greater militarization in a violent region.
