    Background: President Somoza held an emergency meeting with his liberal party congressional leaders on July 6 to discuss negotiations with the u.s. and the military situation. There was considerable difficulty and delays in setting up the meeting and finding a secure sitex with enough room. A building not far from Somoza's bunker headquarters (cuartel) was finally selected. Prior to entering the building for the meeting', Somoza said - again - that he would not resign. He refused to comment on details of his discussion with the deputies beyond saying that they had talked about negotiations with the u.s. and the military situation in general.
