Costa Rica's President Oscar Arias has called for a second round of talks within a week between Manuel Zelaya, Honduras' president ousted in a June 28 military coup, and Roberto Micheletti, the nation's post-coup leader, according to Sunday's edition of the La Nacion newspaper.

Arias hosted the two leaders on Thursday at separate meetings, after which each side designated a committee of four to speak for them. Micheletti and Zelaya did not meet face-to-face, and Micheletti went directly from Arias' residence to the airport.

Zelaya's team had suggested that the next round of talks should be in Honduras' capital Tegucigalpa, but later accepted Costa Ricaas the venue due to a tough environment in Honduras.

All parties to the talks have described the dialogue as a valuable first step, although they did not set an agenda, let alone reach any agreement. Arias has told media that neither side has considered leaving the talks.

Meanwhile, the foreign minister of Zelaya's deposed government, Patricia Rodas, on Sunday said that the ousted government was interested in continuing the process.

She said: "It's a chance for each side to see what the other side is thinking."

However, she added: "It's not a dialogue between two equal parties, but an exchange of information between a criminal on one hand, and a totally legitimate government on the other hand."

Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez has criticized Arias for failing to arrest Micheletti for his role in the military coup against Zelaya.
