Honduras coalition talks stalemated: Zelaya negotiator

Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya agreed in principle to a proposed reconciliation government on Saturday, his chief negotiator said.

But negotiator Enrique Flores said the interim government of Roberto Micheletti rejected the central point of allowing Zelaya to be reinstated, leaving the talks stalemated.

Earlier in the day, Zelaya vowed to return to Honduras as early as Sunday, despite the interim government's threats to have him arrested upon arrival.

Meanwhile, a representative of the interim government said its delegation at the Costa Rica talks lacked the authority to accept all the terms of Costa Rican President Oscar Arias' plan to end the crisis.
