UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Democracy must be restored in Honduras and a political crisis caused by the overthrow of President Manuel Zelaya must end, Spain’s prime minister said at the U.N. General Assembly on Thursday.
“We won’t accept the coup,” Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero told world leaders.
Zelaya was ousted in a June coup in the worst political crisis in Central America in decades. On Monday he returned to his country’s capital of Tegucigalpa and took refuge in Brazil’s embassy, leading to a tense standoff.
