Honduran Foreign Minister Mario Canahuati on Sunday said that his country had restored diplomatic ties with 29 countries since President Porfirio Lobo Sosa took office on Jan. 27, according to news reaching here from Tegucigalpa.

Canahuati, in an interview with El Tiempo daily, said the country had restored its ties with 29 countries, as well as international cooperation in there spheres of regional security, trade, and fight against drug trafficking.

The Honduran government is working to restore its diplomatic ties with Brazil, Mexico and Chile among others, and to normalize relations among members of "the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas" led by Honduras and Venezuela, said Canahuati.

On June 28, 2009, then Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was ousted in a military coup, which was strongly condemned by the international community that had been demanding Zelaya's restoration to power.

The Honduran congress voted against the reinstatement of Zelaya as Lobo won the presidential election on Nov. 29, which was boycotted by Zelaya and slammed as illegitimate by Brazil and Venezuela.
