    TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) – Honduras’ rival governments opened new talks on Wednesday to solve a crisis set off by a coup last month, but its de facto rulers sent mixed signals over allowing toppled President Manuel Zelaya’s return to power.

    U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the government that seized power in the June 28 coup to reach a deal that includes the reinstatement of Zelaya, a leftist who upset the Central American country’s ruling elite.

    But as negotiations re-opened in Costa Rica it was not clear whether there was any chance of a breakthrough.

    In a sign of flexibility, the pro-coup delegation said it would let the Honduran Congress and judiciary consider a proposal to let Zelaya return.

    “We will transmit this draft agreement to our authorities so that dialogue can continue,” said Mauricio Villeda, the interim government’s delegate at the negotiations.
