El Salvador: Cent. America should share embassies

El Salvador's foreign minister says Central American nations should share some embassies to reduce costs.

He suggests they share embassy offices in India, Russia, Australia and Scandinavia.

Foreign Minister Hugo Martinez says the purpose is to cut the cost of posting diplomats and allow them to have representation in more nations.

Martinez said Wednesday that he pitched the idea to other Central American foreign ministers during this week's meeting of the Organization of American States in El Salvador.
