Lobo says Honduras is ready to rejoin Petrocaribe pact

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Honduras could rejoin the Venezuelan-led Petrocaribe oil pact within a very short time, President Porfirio Lobo said.

Hugo Chávez, the Venezuelan president, unilaterally ordered an abrupt end to shipments of Honduras under the pact following the 2009 Honduran coup.

Lobo said he has spoken with Venezuelan officials about Petrocaribe and told them: “If you like we can sign up again next Monday.”
