Micheletti to Zelaya: I will resign if you also desist on your claim

Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The government delegation proposed again today to deposed President Manuel Zelaya that if he gives up his aspirations to return to the presidency, Roberto Micheletti will also step down, reporters were informed by [Micheletti] negotiator Vilma Morales.

"We express the acceptance of President Roberto Micheletti to leave the Presidency of the Republic if Mr. José Manuel Zelaya gives up his claims, thus leading to a transitional government of national reconciliation," Morales told a news conference. This proposal comes after Zelaya announced the dialogue was closed as of midnight Thursday after the government refused to return him to power to end the crisis, which began June 28.

Zelaya announced that he will contact various members of the international community to refer them the situation after the breakdown of dialogue with the government of Roberto Micheletti.
