Paris - France said on Friday it would send its ambassador back to Honduras following the surprise return of the country's deposed leader.

"Following a request from Honduras' constitutional government, France has decided... to send its ambassador back to Tegucigalpa as soon as possible," a French foreign ministry spokesman said.

The spokesman added the decision was a result of "the new context created by (ousted President) Manuel Zelaya's return on 21 September ".

He said that representatives of Organization of American States (OAS) countries are also to return to their embassies in Honduras.

The announcement came as Zelaya asked his supporters to keep protesting for his return to office in the central American country, despite the start of tentative talks with the de facto regime.

The OAS suspended Honduras in the wake of Zelaya's ouster and governments around the region had refused to recognize the interim administration led by Roberto Micheletti.
