world Updated: Jul 23, 2009 11:18 IST

The mediator in the Honduras crisis, Costa Rican President Oscar Arias, on Wednesday proposed a return of ousted President Manuel Zelaya to the Central American nation on Friday.

"We ask Congress to return the situation of the executive power... to its state prior to June 28," Arias said.

"That implies the return of Manuel Zelaya to the presidency until the end of the current period," he added, on presentation of a document calling for Zelaya's return on July 24.
