Honduran Foreign Minister Mario Canahuati on Monday hailed the beginning of normalization of his country's relations with other countries after last year's coup.

"The ties are starting to normalize," although President Porfirio Lobo had been in office for just 18 days, Canahuati told local media.

"The advance we have had in these 18 days has been very important, not only with friendly countries at the international level, but also with multilateral financing organizations," Canahuati said.

"Britain, Morocco, Israel and Turkey have requested our approval for sending their ambassadors to our country," Canahuati said.

"The ties with Spain begin to be normalized, as we have requested the consent to have a Honduran ambassador in that country," he said.

"Technically just the Central American countries like Nicaragua are missing (from the normalization). Also we have not restored diplomatic ties with Brazil or with the members of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas either," he said.

But Brazil has sought Honduras' consent for sending an officer in charge of business, in a gesture that "shows its intention of establishing a friendly relation with Honduras as a first step," Canahuati said.
