Continuing troubles in Central America have raised new concerns about the fragile political and economic situation in Honduras. It is Central America's poorest country and is struggling with a severely depressed economy and regional instability. Both threaten its recent steps toward democracy. Honduras has growing concerns, moreover, about overall United States policy in
the region, and fears particularly. that a policy shift would leave Honduras standing alone against the Sandinista regime in Nicaragua and the embittered Nicaraguan freedom fighters.
