SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) - Costa Rican President Oscar Arias is giving Honduran negotiators a plan to end a standoff between rival claimants to the presidency.

Arias says ousted Honduran leader Manuel Zelaya should return to
power at the head of a reconciliation government and that presidential elections should be moved up a month to October.

Arias says in a statement he is also proposing a general amnesty for all political crimes committed before and after the June 28 coup. He says Zelaya should give up control of the armed forces a month before elections.

Arias made the proposals Saturday as he tries to mediate a solution before greater violence can erupt in the nearby nation. Many of the proposals already have been rejected by one side or the other.
