    Mostar, August 6, 1996 (Press TWRA)

    Negotiations between Bosniak and Croatian representatives, mediated by EU, have been stooped in Mostar early this morning. New meeting was announced for 11 a.m. today. Regarding the last evening talks, President of HDZ Mostar Civic board, Mile Puljic, stated to journalists Croatian side was prepared to sign EU proposal but Bosniak side did not want to. Safet Orucevic, leader of Bosniak negotiation team, stated EU proposed a new, more compromise proposal in relation to the former one, which was refused by Croatian side. According to him, just one question has remained disputable: functioning of the Civic council. As to Orucevic, a dead-line should be designed until which Federal Constitution Court should made decision and Civic council should gather at least once in every 60 days. Somehow earlier than 11 a.m., Croatian team presented to Sir Martin Garrod, EU Special Envoy to Mostar, their new proposal. At their arrival, they stated they signed a proposal identical to the European one. OSCE Chief of mission, Robert Frowick, stated yesterday OSCE have been firmly supporting, from the very beginning, a leading position of the European Union, regarding the elections held on June 30 in Mostar. Frowick repeatedly confirmed the election results because, according to OSCE, the political process was carried out in an appropriate way. Election commission confirmed on two occasions (July 8 and 9) that elections results are correct and are considered as an integral part of the forthcoming September elections. Elections were organized under the EU patronage that has, practically, a mandate in the town and its activity is harmonized with BH Constitution, Forwick said, adding the situation in Mostar must be urgently resolved for its result could have a decisive influence on the forthcoming elections in BH. In connection to the latest events in Mostar, Colum Murphy, Carl BildtFs spokesman, stated international community is not ready to accept any political blackmail and election results must be respected.
