US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton firmly opposed allowing Cuba to rejoin the Organization of American States unless it adopts democratic reforms, an isolated US stand that prompted Honduras to label the US embargo on Cuba a "day of infamy." President Barack Obama's top diplomat heard multiple complaints from fellow diplomats as others at the group's annual general assembly here demanded immediate action to rescind Cuba's nearly 50-year-old suspension without conditions. Honduran President Manuel Zelaya, the host of the meeting, urged that the 1962 resolution that suspended Cuba's membership be revoked on Tuesday, calling its passage and the imposition of the US embargo on Cuba a "day of infamy" and a grave error.
