Shultz meets counterparts in Central America . . .

Secretary of State George Shultz met the foreign ministers of four Central American nations Thursday - Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. Mr. Shultz and Richard Stone, the US special envoy to Central America, arrived Wednesday after a nine-hour visit to El Salvador.

Shultz took part in Thursday's inauguration ceremonies for Venezuelan President Jaime Lusinchi.

Mr. Lusinchi, who overcame political imprisonment and torture under military rule, pledged in his inaugural address that his oil-rich country will repay its foreign debt ''to the last cent.'' Venezuela owes an estimated $35 billion to some 450 international banks.

Venezuela is the second leg of Shultz's Latin American tour, which continues in Brazil, Barbados, and Grenada.
