      (AFP)

      7 April 2005

      BAGHDAD - Iraq�s new head of state Jalal Talabani
      proposed on Thursday an amnesty for insurgents to
      �give them a chance� to integrate into the post-Saddam
      Hussein Iraq.

      �We must find a political and peaceful solution with
      Iraqis who have been led astray by terrorism and grant
      them an amnesty,� Talabani said following his swearing
      in as the country�s first directly - elected
      president.

      He said insurgents �should be invited to participate
      in the democratic process and be given the chance to
      benefit from the acquired freedoms, even if they call
      for the withdrawal of foreign or occupation forces, as
      they call them.�
