    Background: Nicaragua's Foreign Minister, Miguel d'Escoto, on July 5 accused the United States of trying to prevent negotiations between his country and Honduras. Mr d'Escoto, who was on a four-day official visit to Spain, said the U.S. had failed in its attempts to topple Nicaragua's government by backing guerrilla incursions from Honduras. His comments followed talks with Spain's Prime Minister Mr Felipe Gonzalez, and Foreign Minister Fernando Moran. After denying rumours of Cuban and Soviet involvement in the conflict, he told reporters Nicaragua was-and would continue to be-defended by Nicaraguans. He said his government wanted talks with Honduras, but Honduran officials had admitted in private that the U.S. would not allow them to undertake negotiations, and that dialogue with Nicaragua's leftist regime would lead to the withdrawal of U.S. support from their government. Spain favours a multi-lateral solution to the armed conflicts in the region, including guarantees for Nicaragua's Sandinista government.
