The interim government of Honduras said on Friday that the country has decided to quit from the Organization of American States (OAS), Xinhua reported.

The announcement came after OAS chief Jose Miguel Insulza said he would recommend the suspension of Honduras from the regional group due to its post-coup rulers' refusal to reinstate ousted President Manuel Zelaya.

The OAS has given Honduras' interim government until noon on Saturday to restore Zelaya to power, or face expulsion.
