UPDATED
Please scroll down for updates

Honduras’ interim president Roberto Micheletti has met privately with Costa Rican president Oscar Arias at Arias’s residence, according to Globovisión. Earlier in the day, Micheletti had refused to leave the airport “unless his personal safety was guaranteed.” Guatemalan government minister Rodrigo Arias, Oscar’s brother, then escorted Micheletti to the meeting.

Here’s video of Globovisión’s TV report, via Noticias 24

After Honduras coup outburst, Chavez works in wings

While not in the spotlight, Chavez has been busy. His foreign minister and top aides spent most of last week in Central America and he was in regular phone contact with leftist elders Fidel Castro of Cuba and Ortega.

Venezuela cut oil supplies to Honduras and lent a plane and a pilot for Zelaya’s return attempt on Sunday that was aborted when Honduran soldiers blocked the runway in Tegucigalpa. Other countries in the Organization of American States had advised Zelaya not to make the trip.

Chavez cut short his participation in Venezuela’s independence day celebration on Sunday to follow the action.

Former Assistant Secretary of State for Western
Hemisphere Affairs Otto Reich is scheduled to testify at tomorrow’s open hearing of the Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, The Crisis in Honduras. Chavez had blamed the coup on Reich. You can read Reich’s reply here (registration needed).

    This guy is full of _ _ _ _!
    Honduran law precludes Zelaya from retaining his post, but Obama is trying to reinstate him into office, anyway. Is Obama’s advocacy on behalf of Zelaya a criminal act? Me thinks so.

  3. Da O Says:

    This guy is full of BS. Honduran law explicitly disqualifies Zelaya from retaining his post. But despite Honduran law, Obama is trying to reinstate this thug into office anyway. A criminal act on the part of Obama? Me think so….

    This actually, Micheletti landing in Costa Rica, was more auspicious then the last time an ally of the US got in an APC. Diem!
