Costa Rica hosts rival Honduras leaders

Costa Rican President Oscar Arias will host talks between the rival claimants for the Honduran presidency later today.

Mr. Arias says he wants to improve communication between deposed Honduran President Manuel Zelaya and the interim leader, Roberto Micheletti.

The Honduran crisis erupted a week ago when Mr Zelaya was ousted by the army after Congress and the Supreme Court accused him of violating the constitution.

The Costa Rican President says it will take time to create trust between the two sides.

"What I want to start is a dialogue between the two parties in conflict in Honduras," he said.

"You can call it a negotiation os simply a talk, a conversation, a dialogue. But I want the two parties to sit around the table and discuss the issues."
