Grammar errrors in need of fixing:

3rd paragraph: In May 1986, a summit meeting, "Esquipulas I", took place, attended by the five Central American presidents. On February 15, 1987, Costa Rican President Oscar Arias submitted a Peace Plan which evolved from meeting.

6th paragraph: The US government refused to recognize the agreement due to its de facto recognition of the democratically elected government of Nicaragua, which the US government was seeking to undermine. The US ignored the agreement and violated conditions of it. Thus, the agreement was unsuccessful, although some have said it was successful as they considered it a sly political attack on the government of Nicaragua. Eventually the agreement was rewritten more to the liking of the US government.

Also, Overall tone of the article is a bit odd. --Yuletide 21:29, 24 October 2005 (UTC)


The last paragraph of the article:


Arias' efforts on behalf of the Esquipulas Peace Agreement earned him the 1987 Nobel Peace Prize. Despite the fact, he didn't propose or collaborate in any peace process in Central America. Real propositions came from the Guatemalan Government, headed by Vinicio Cerezo, which Arias plagiarized and presented as his "plan".
