Offer to South Ossetia

Seeking to renew negotiations in a stalemated internal conflict, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili released details of a proposal offering autonomy to South Ossetia that would grant the breakaway region new political rights and economic benefits.

Saakashvili said the proposal would be made public Wednesday at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, in France.

South Ossetia has been all but independent since fighting a civil war against Georgia in the early 1990s.
