Leaders and representatives of the Central American Integration System (SICA) member states Saturday met in Honduras's capital Tegucigalpa on regional security and integration, according to reports reaching Managua.

Presidents from Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica, Guatemala and El Salvador, a vice president of Panama as well as representatives from the Dominican Republic and Belize attended the summit meeting.

Top on the agenda of the SICA meeting were security across the Central America, efforts to establish a customs union among the member nations and the U.S. financial crisis's impact on the region.
