Adjust font size:

Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya said on Thursday that the dialogue to solve the crisis in the country has already begun.

"Today (Thursday) began the dialogue, of course, it is positive," Zelaya told local TV channel Canal 36.

Juan Jose Pineda, an auxiliary Catholic bishop of Tegucigalpa, is the first to visit Zelaya in the Brazilian embassy to Tegucigalpa.

After his meeting with Zelaya, Pineda told reporters that "all of us have been talking about dialogue and nobody has given the first step, nobody wanted to expose oneself."

Pineda added that "I as son of this country, of this Church, of the Catholic Church, I wanted to take the responsibility of giving the first step and open the windows, the doors of my country to have a dialogue."

Zelaya is also waiting for the visit of four from the six presidential candidates, who first met with de facto president Roberto Micheletti on Thursday noon.

The presidential candidates to visit Zelaya are Porfirio Lobo Sosa from the National Party; Elvin Santos from the Liberal Party; Bernard Martinez from the Innovation and Unit Party; and Felicito Avila from the Christian Democracy Party.

This is the first time Zelaya will dialogue with a Honduran delegation to solve the crisis in the country, which began on June 28 when he was ousted.
