State Department: Serbia-Montenegro - Travel Warning, October 1, 1998

Serbia-Montenegro - Travel Warning
October 1, 1998

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against travel to Serbia-Montenegro. United States citizens in Serbia-Montenegro are urged to consider departing the country. Due to the failure of Belgrade authorities to comply with United Nations Security Council demands and in the face of atrocities committed in Kosovo, members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) are considering the necessity for military action. This action could be decided upon in the near future.

Both the police and Kosovo Liberation Army (UCK) are active in Kosovo and each operates numerous checkpoints throughout the region. There have been incidents at both kinds of checkpoints in which guards have fired at vehicles whose occupants did not obey their commands. Due to the potential for violence, the authority of the individuals operating these checkpoints should not be challenged.

No. 98-048

This supersedes the Travel Warning for Serbia-Montenegro dated July 1, 1998 to note the potential for military action by NATO in Serbia-Montenegro.
