Constitutional President of Honduras Manuel Zelaya said on Monday he will continue talking with the de facto regime, but he has no confidence in solutions to the crisis through this path.
"I always maintain my spirit of dialogue, but I have no confidence in the putschists," said Zelaya, who returned to Tegucigalpa on September 21 and remains since then in the Brazilian Embassy, submitted to tight military control.
Talks between representatives of Zelaya and of the de facto ruler Roberto Micheletti, sponsored by a mission of Foreign ministers of the Organization of American States, started last Wednesday, but they are at a standstill and are expected to be resumed tomorrow.
Putschists have refused to accept that the solution to the crisis must include the reinstatement of Zelaya to his post, as requested by multilateral institutions, regional bodies and several governments.
"It will be a bow at the international community if they refuse to restore what they usurped," Zelaya told journalists.
According to him, "tomorrow will be a crucial day of the dialogue to know whether the crisis will be solved, but I have no confidence." What will happen "is that the de facto regime will continue refusing to comply with the resolution agreed on by OAS and the international community."
"If this effort towards an understanding fails, we will continue struggling on the streets and the crisis will intensify," stressed Zelaya.
