The Embassy of the United States in El Salvador clarifies that the Department of State has certified to the United States Congress that the three countries of the Northern Triangle — El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras — have taken effective measures to comply with the conditions established by the Congress of the United States this year.
At this time, the decision of when funding will be disbursed is in the hands of Congress.
