Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said on Thursday he was offering South Ossetian separatists an immediate ceasefire following days of heavy fighting.
He said he had ordered Georgian forces not to return fire.
"I offer you an immediate ceasefire and the immediate beginning of talks," Saakashvili said in a televised address. He repeated an offer of "full autonomy" for the breakaway region.
