I think that you could argue either way. Probably #2 is the closest.

the united states United States supports the ahisaari Ahtisaari plan which calls for a form of supervised independence
The United States supports the plan that Mr. Ahtisaari created and proposed. This plan contains a requirement that there should be independence, and that someone should supervise, perhaps a group of administrators or perhaps even soldiers.

Hello Lindasu,

That means that The United States will,as a very strong and technologicaly advanced superpower ,by using shell bombs ,take away part of territory of some other country,install their troups there and proclaim independence of their soldiers on that territory.That would be in brief the meaning of that sentence.

Best regards
