    Belgrade, May 31, 1996 (Press TWRA)

    "Negotiations were great and I am very satisfied with their course", Russian Foreign Minister, Jevgenij Primakov stated, after yesterday's talks with Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic. Primakov concluded Milosevic also tries to fully implement all Dayton and Paris accord commitments, in which he is fully supported by Russia. During his two-day visit to Belgrade, Primakov also talked with Montenegrian President Momir Bulatovic as well as with "FRY" President Zoran Lilic. Official comment of this meeting mentions " solving of the question of Prevlaka is very important for long-lasting peace in the area". "FRY" Minister of justice, Uros Klikovac informed Russian diplomat, Belgrade does not prepare any exchange in its law-system which could enable cooperation with the Hague Court. Such attitude of Belgrade concerning the issue is close to the Russian opinion, for diplomats in Primakov company claim arresting of Karadzic and Mladic would imperil even more seriously peace in BH. In talks with Serbian Foreign Minister, Milutinovic, Russian side expressed readiness to reinforce "FRY" efforts to enter in UN, OESC, MMF, World bank, World trade organization. (end) M.S.

    Members of Sweden PEN sent a letter to Croatian President dr. Franjo Tudjman due to the arrestement of "Feral Tribune" Editor-in-Chief, Viktor Ivancic.

Your country will be inevitably faced with negative international critics, in the case such annoying is continued", members of Sweden PEN stated in the letter. They called Tudjman to stop such acts because, as they think, there are no conditions, in one democratic country, according to which systems of direct or indirect threatening of journalists from the side of civil officials could be accepted.
