The Chilean government expresses its rejection of the recent violent events that occurred during the elections in Honduras and expresses its condolences for the victims. It also hopes that these incidents will be investigated and those responsible duly sanctioned.
The Chilean government makes an urgent appeal to the Honduran authorities and political and social forces to respect the official and definitive results of the presidential election. There is no other legitimate path than strict respect for the popular will expressed in the voting polls.
Finally, the Chilean government reiterates its permanent commitment to democracy, the defence of human rights and respect for the rule of law, as established, among other instruments, in the Inter-American Democratic Charter.
