Honduras's de facto government and ousted President Manuel Zelaya agreed Friday to begin talks next week on resolving the political crisis triggered by a June coup, an OAS envoy said.

AFP - Honduras' de facto government and ousted President Manuel Zelaya agreed Friday to open talks next week on resolving the political crisis triggered by a June coup, an OAS envoy said.
  
"There is going to be a call to dialogue," John Biehl, an envoy for the Organization of American States, told reporters. "The current government will make it, and the other party will accept. That has been agreed."
  
"For now, there will not be a direct meeting" between Zelaya and the de facto president Roberto Micheletti, he said.
  
Biehl said talks could begin before the arrival here on October 7 of a delegation of regional foreign ministers and OAS Secretary General Jose Miguel Insulza, who would be invited to attend a follow-up session.
