State Department: Serbia-Montenegro - Travel Warning, March 23, 1999

Serbia-Montenegro - Travel Warning
March 23, 1999

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against travel to Serbia- Montenegro and strongly urges U.S. citizens in Serbia-Montenegro to depart the country without delay due to the increased potential for military intervention by members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

On March 23, the Department of State suspended operations at the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade and ordered all remaining Embassy personnel to leave the country immediately. U.S. Government interests in Serbia-Montenegro will be represented by the government of Sweden, which, as a protecting power, can provide only limited emergency services to U.S. citizens.

Given recent history in the region, the possibility exists that U.S. citizens could be singled out in sporadic acts of violence, even though the government of Serbia-Montenegro has offered assurances no retaliatory actions would be taken against U.S. citizens.

This supersedes the March 20 Travel Warning for Serbia-Montenegro to note the State Department's suspension of operations at the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade.
