Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa on Thursday said that his government will not support Honduras' re-entry to the Organization of American States (OAS) until the coup mongers are punished.

As long as it does not occur, "Ecuador will never give its support for Honduras to return to the OAS," Correa told reporters.

Correa said it is fundamental to punish those responsible of the coup against then Honduran President Manuel Zelaya in June 2009 as some of them held senior posts in the new government.

"We cannot think that nothing happened; that is called impunity," he said, adding however that he respects the position of other countries which support Honduras' return to the OAS.

Most of the OAS countries support the return of Honduras, whose membership was suspended on July 4, 2009 after the coup against Zelaya.
