The UN Assembly's general debate entered Thursday the second day, amid increasing demands for the restitution of President Jose Manuel Zelaya.
Thursday's agenda includes strong statements about this issue by several heads of State, among them, Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, Paraguay's Fernando Lugo, Spain's Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, and Guatemala's Alvaro Colom.
Costa Rican President Oscar Arias will also talk about Honduras at the UN meeting. Arias played a mediating role at the beginning of the crisis and named a plan that tried to solve the conflict.
Harsh demands against the June 28 coup d'Etat and for Zelaya's restitution were analyzed by several presidents at the UN plenary session on Wednesday.
Zelaya returned to his country two days ago and is staying at the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa.
Today's session takes place few hours after UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon announced suspension of the technical assistance the world organization had devoted to favor the electoral process in the Central American country.
A summit of the Security Council member states exclusively devoted to nucelar disarmament and non-proliferation of nuclear weapons is also included on Thursday's program.
