Some progress was made in 1988 towards achieving peaceful solutions to the conflicts in Central America. However, outbreaks of violence continued on both sides of the Nicaragua/Honduras border. The civil war in El Salvador continued, with the Government accusing the insurgents of the Frente Farabundo Marti para la Liberacion National of engaging in terrorist activities aimed at seizing power. Panama accused the United States of. among other things, mobilizing unauthorized military forces on its territory and withholding payments related to use of the Panama Canal, in violation of treaties signed between the two countries.
