Panama's Defense Forces rejected a role in a three-way dialogue with opposition and government political parties on Panama's election crisis. The proposal was made by a delegation from the Organization of American States, which was sent to Panama after the government voided the May 7 presidential election.

Noriega said last month that he would not negotiate with the opposition.
