El Salvador to recognise Honduras` new government

Salvadoran President Mauricio Funes says he will re-establish ties with neighbouring Honduras when president-elect Porfirio Lobo is sworn into office.



San Salvador: Salvadoran President Mauricio Funes says he will re-establish ties with neighbouring Honduras when president-elect Porfirio Lobo is sworn into office.
Funes says "we will start the process of normalising relations" following Lobo`s inauguration on Wednesday. Funes was elected on the ticket of the leftist FMLN party formed by former Salvadoran rebels.

The term of ousted president Manuel Zelaya ends on Wednesday.

Some Latin American nations do not recognise Lobo`s victory in November elections, because the vote was held under the interim government that replaced Zelaya.

A leader of Honduras` congress says lawmakers will start considering a bill on Tuesday to grant an amnesty to those involved in the June 28 coup that removed Zelaya.
