Brazil said Thursday it would send an envoy to witness former Honduran president Manuel Zelaya's scheduled return to his country on Saturday, a pre-condition set by the Organization of the Americas (OAS) to readmit the Central American nation.

Special Advisor on International Affairs of Brazilian Presidency Marco Aurelio Garcia will travel to the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa on that occasion, Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota told a joint news conference.

"That should seal the return of Honduras to the American and international coexistence," Patriota said.

Under a deal reached among OAS members on Sunday, Hondruas, whose membership was suspended after Zelaya was ousted in a coup in June 2009, would be readmitted into the organization under the conditions that the former president would be allowed to safely return to his country with full political rights guaranteed.

The readmission would be formalized at an extraordinary general meeting to be held on June 1 in Washington.

The current Honduran government led by Porfirio Lobo which emerged from elections after the coup, would also gain recognition of OAS members after Zelaya's return.
