Ousted president: 1st talks a failure

September 25, 2009


— Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya said late Thursday that his first talks with the interim government that kicked him out of the country in June were a failure.

An official with the administration of interim President Roberto Micheletti took “an extremely hard” stand when the two met Wednesday night, Zelaya told TV Channel 36.

The comment was a direct reversal of Zelaya’s remarks earlier Thursday, when he told Radio Globo that the talks were “the beginning to find peaceful solutions.”

In contrast, Zelaya told Channel 36 that the government’s positions are “totally outside of any possibility of agreement.”

Zelaya also again insisted that any agreement with the interim government must include his reinstatement as president.
