HAVANA, July 11 — Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya said on Friday that the political situation in Honduras after the coup will be taken to the Summit of the Non Aligned Movement (NAM) for discussion by Dominican President Leonel Fernandez.

According to information reaching here from Santo Domingo, capital of Dominican Republic, Zelaya made the announcement after having a meeting with Fernandez at the National Palace.

Zelaya said that Fernandez will take the case of Honduras to the NAM Summit to be held on July 13-17 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.

Zelaya said that he did not attend the summit because he is doing the necessary procedures to return to his country and restore his government, since he was ousted on June 28.

"The world demand democracy (in Honduras, where) it is being defended a principle against a way of acting; the reason over the force; the peace over the violence," Zelaya said.

Zelaya was welcomed with military honors at the headquarters of the Executive, shortly after arriving at Las Americas International Airport.

Zelaya arrived at Dominican Republic after attending in Costa Rica a meeting with President Oscar Arias, who mediates on the conflict in Honduras. (PNA/Xinhua) ALM
