Indonesia's foreign minister on Friday ruled out a prolonged transition period on the road to independence for the rebel territory of East Timor, but he said he hoped that the Timorese would opt for autonomy within Indonesia rather than full independence. Ali Abdullah Alatas, who is attending a meeting of developing countries in the Jamaican resort of Montego Bay, said autonomy was "the most realistic, the most fair, the most viable and the most peaceful solution" for the region.
