Nicaragua won't recognize Honduran government

President Daniel Ortega says his government will not recognize the authority of newly inaugurated President Porfirio Lobo in Honduras, but Nicaragua will maintain economic and trade relations with the neighboring country.
Lobo has been scrambling since his inauguration last week to restore diplomatic relations with the international community. Honduras was cut off from foreign aid in June after then-President Manuel Zelaya was forced into exile, cutting short his term.
Ortega said Saturday night that he had no reason to believe that those who forced Zelaya out of office were no longer in power.
"We feel threatened," said Ortega.
