Serbia-Montenegro - Travel Warning
November 25, 1998
The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against travel to and around
Serbia's southern province of Kosovo. While there is a cease-fire in
Kosovo, the potential for rapid change in the security situation there
remains high. Tension between Serb authorities and ethnic Albanians
continues unabated and there are frequent reports of armed clashes in the
Members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) issued an
activation order October 13, 1998 in preparation for military action in the
event the Belgrade government fails to fully comply with United Nations
Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1199. Implementation of this order is
being held in abeyance by NATO and NATO remains concerned about compliance
with UNSCR 1199 by both sides to the conflict.
