Triangle ministers to meet in Washington
The foreign ministers of Central America's Northern Triangle --Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras-- are to meet on October 11 and 12 in Washington to discuss the regional Alliance Prosperity plan.
All three were to meet last month but the US government postponed the gathering, alleging that there was diplomatic friction between El Salvador and Guatemala. Some sources, however, said the problem was El Salvador's decision to establish diplomatic relations with China.
In a statement on the upcoming meeting, the Mexican Foreign minister said: "The meeting is expected to continue with progress on programs and concrete measures that provide opportunities in the region, with a focus on prosperity and in full respect for the sovereignty of all the region's nations."
