The UN Security Council is carrying out on Friday a consultation about the situation sparked off in Honduras at the request of Brazil, due to the deterioration of the crisis in that Central American country.

Discussions were agreed as of a letter the Brazilian government presented faced with a rise in tension and the siege imposed by Honduran coup authorities in the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa.

The conflict erupted in June, when Honduran Constitutional President Manuel Zelaya was kidnapped and taken out of the country by force, provoking a harsh international reaction, included the UN General Assembly.

The UN approved then a resolution condemning the coup d'Etat and the breaking of constitutional and democratic order in that country, and demanded the immediate and unconditional restitution of Zelaya's government.

The situation is now more complex after the unexpected return of the head of State and his stay in the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa.

That diplomatic mission is being besieged by military forces and police that threaten to burst into that place.

Condemnations to the coup and demand for the restitution to power of Zelaya have turned into a constant exigency in speeches by dozens of presidents worldwide that are attending the UN Assembly's general debate two days ago.
