Honduran Government Asks Venezuelan Diplomats To Leave

While the rest of the world squeezes them.

TEGUCIGALPA, July 21 (Xinhua) -- Honduras' interim government on Tuesday gave 72 hours to Venezuelan diplomats to leave, accusing them of threatening to use force and interfering into the country's internal affairs.

"The Foreign Ministry has requested the honorable embassy of Venezuela the withdrawal of its administrative, technical and diplomatic staff in a term of 72 hours due to the threats of using force, the interference in internal issues as well as the lack of respect to the territorial integrity," Deputy Foreign Minister Martha Lorena Alvarado said

It's a damned shame they have to couch it in terms of "request". But that's what they're up against.
