Ousted Honduran President's aide claims talks are deadlocked

An aide to ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya said negotiations to solve the country's three-month old political crisis are once again at an impasse.

Negotiator Victor Meza accuses the interim government of obstructing progress by insisting that Congress and the Supreme Court be consulted on whether Mr Zelaya can be reinstated.

The court has already said Mr Zelaya should not be allowed to return.

Mr Meza said Mr Zelaya's team will not return to the table until Roberto Micheletti's government presents a "constructive proposal." But he added that they will not break off talks entirely.

Mr Zelaya was ousted on June 28 after he defied Supreme Court orders to cancel a referendum on a constitutional rewrite.
