WASHINGTON (AP) _ Ousted Honduran president Manuel Zelaya says
he's optimistic and is still planning to return Sunday to his country a week after he was overthrown by a military coup.

Zelaya said as he arrived at the Organization of American States building that everyone is rejecting the coup. The OAS is meeting in Washington to consider suspending Honduras' membership because of
the coup that ousted him.

But even before Saturday's emergency session, Honduras' interim government decided to pulled out of the OAS rather than meet demands to reinstate Zelaya. OAS officials say they haven't received formal notification of that move.
