TEGUCIGALPA, Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- A delegation team of the de facto Honduran government officials went back to Washington on Monday to continue dialogue with the Organization of American States (OAS), which aimed at finding a solution to the Honduran political crisis.

The delegation "will guarantee that the doors of the world are open to Honduras," Interim Honduran leader Roberto Micheletti told reporters before dispatching the team.

The delegation consists of former Supreme Court chief justice Vilma Morales along with Mauricio Villeda and Arturo Corrales. The three took part in the post-coup negotiations mediated by Costa Rican President Oscar Arias.

During the visit, the officials will meet with OAS foreign ministers, prepare for their visit to Honduras, and discuss the San Jose Agreement proposed by Arias.

The Agreement is considered by the OAS and the U.S. as the best solution to the Honduran political crisis. The pact includes the restoration of power for deposed President Manuel Zelaya, political amnesty to those involved in the coup and early presidential elections.

The ousted leader supports the plan which, however, is rejected by Micheletti.
