"What this is is not a negotiation, this is the planning of the exit of the coup leaders," he said.

"We're not going to negotiate, we're going to talk," he said. "We're going into these talks because we're interested in having peace and tranquility in Honduras."

Micheletti returned to Honduras but appointed officials to continue negotiations. He said presidential elections in Honduras will be held in November as planned.

Teachers and labor unions have threatened strikes in support of deposed president Zelaya. But it has been said that 77 percent of the people of Honduras support Zelaya's ouster.
