Statement on Panama

July 15, 1989, Paris
[Unofficial Translation]

The participants examined the situation in Panama, marked by the invalidation of the results of the elections of May 7 last and by repressive measures against the opposition. They firmly disapprove of these practices.

They are sending an appeal to the Organization of American States to continue its efforts to see to it that democratic rules and the free choice of the Panamanian people are fully respected.
