Costa Rica wants exclusion from US coalition

Bruno StagnoSan Jose, May 18 (Prensa Latina) The Costa Rican Government officially requested to be excluded from the list of nations which supported the war against Iraq.

In line with a decision taken by former president Abel Pacheco (2002-2006), Costa Rica figures in the list of countries grouped in the coalition which supported the intervention in Iraq, in total disregard for how most of the population felt about the issue.

In a note addressed to US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Foreign Minister Bruno Stagno (pictured) demanded the exclusion of the name of Costa Rica from any White House web page referring to such backing of the US-led invasion and occupation.

The request was given to Brian Simmons, who is second secretary of the US Embassy in Costa Rica, according to the Foreign Ministry press office.
