The Central American Defense Council (Consejo de Defensa Centroamericana or Condeca) was an alliance of Central American countries (El Salvador, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama). It was created in 1962 for the common purpose of quelling the various left-wing guerrilla movements that threatened stability in the region during the Cold War. It is now defunct.
