  • [01] REVIVAL OF COOPERATION BETWEEN USA AND YUGOSLAVIA

    For the first time after the disintegration of former Yugoslavia, talks are being conducted at the high level on an accelerated normalization of the relations between the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the United States of America. Over the last years cooperation between the two countries, especially in the field of economy was almost dormant. The dialogue which started last week with Warren Christopher was continued yesterday by Milan Milutinovic with the Deputy Secretary of State Strob Talbot and the second ranking official in the National Security Council of the White House Samuel Berger. Milutinovic also had a meeting with the distinguished senator from Indiana Richard Lugan. (Politika, October 1, 1996)

    [02] SANCTIONS ARE FALLING

    The official spokesman of the State Department, Nicholas Burns announced yesterday that the sanctions against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia , which were suspended last year, will be very soon and formally lifted. Burns also said that "lifting of sanctions is a question of days", underlining that the United States will vote for such a decision at the session of the UN Security Council, because "the conditions agreed in Dayton have already been fulfilled".

    [03] FINANCING OF CHURCH PROJECTS

    Serbian Patriarch Pavle, within his several-day visit to Cyprus, visited yesterday "Beogradska banka" together with the Archbishop of Cyprus, His Excellency Chrisostom. On that occasion, Patriarch Pavle especially thanked the Yugoslav-Cyprian humanitarian fund established by the Beogradska banka COBY and which had gathered over the past several years significant money funds, besides material items, food and clothing for the refugees from Krajina, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. These moneys are being distributed every months and also now as aid for children who have lost their parents. (Politika, October 1, 1996)

    [04] TREPCA ACCUMULATORS IN RUSSIAN CARS

    An agreement was signed in Moscow on the import of accumulators manufactured in the "Trepca" Combine in the southern Serbia. The value of this deal amounts to 4.3 million US dollars. The total five-year export of accumulators from "Trepca" to Russia with this agreement, has reached the amount of some 65 million dollars. (Politika, October 1, 1996)

    [05] BUNJEVCI - TO BE GRANTED STATUS OF PEOPLE

    In the Republic of Serbia, Bunjevci will be granted the status of people, because they are a people whose homeland is Serbia and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, stated yesterday in Subotica Dr. Ratko Markovic, Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia. Dr. Markovic underlined that the agreement was reached putting a stop to all the past manipulations and claims of the name and identity of Bunjevci and as a prevention to all the attempts at assimilation and denial of their national identity.

    [06] JOINT INSTITUTIONS

    Members of the Presidency of Bosnia-Herzegovina elected at the elections of September 14, 1996, Alija Izetbegovic, Momcilo Krajisnik and Kresimir Zubak had a meeting yesterday for the first time and talked for the full three hours. The joint institutions of Bosnia-Herzegovina will be formed and officially inaugurated next Saturday in Sarajevo. (Politika, October 1, 1996)

    [07] MUSLIMS MUST LEAVE

    The Commander of the Second American Brigade of the IFOR, Colonel John Batista stated yesterday that Muslims who have on September 20, 1996 illegally entered the village of Jusici near Zvornik, must leave and return to the Muslim-Croat Federation. "This is a violation of the Dayton Accords", said Batista during his visit to the Public Security Center in Zvornik, confirming that this group of Muslims is still armed.

    According to the Reuters reports, however, maybe this is just a cover for military activities, warned yesterday NATO. The NATO source is saying: "I do not think that this is just by chance that the return is being recorded near strategically important areas...it is not a question of a direct military action, which is forthcoming, but of something that will happen in the future", he explains. (Politika ekspres and Nasa borba, October 1, 1996)

    [08] "JOY OF EUROPE"

    Traditional children's event "Joy of Europe", after four years, is again starting tomorrow. This gathering of youngsters from Europe, which is being held for the 23rd time, is organized on the occasion of the World Day of the Child. Children from 15 European countries will take part in the event. (Vecernje novosti, October 1, 1996)

    [09] LITIGATION INSTEAD OF AGREEMENT

    With a lot of cynicism and hypocrisy, representatives of Slovenia will appear this week at the session of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund in Washington D.C. While preparations are still going on for the conference on succession - inheritance of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Slovenia is not giving up on its lobbying against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and is by all means trying to get its hands on the foreign exchange funds of the former Yugoslavia. To this end, it has started litigation proceedings this summer before the court of law in Cyprus, demanding the blockade of 146 million US dollars which are allegedly on the bank accounts of the Belgrade Bank (Beogradska banka), and which allegedly again belong to the fund of joint assets of the former National Bank of the SFR of Yugoslavia. Similar request is also filed with the French court for the blockade of assets of funds of the Franco-Yugoslav Bank in Paris. Thus, instead of patience and an honest agreement on succession, Slovenia is hectically filing charges around the world, because it is clear to it that it will have to pay its debt for the breaking down of former Yugoslavia.

    [10] MEDITERRANEAN CONFERENCE OF THE AIESEC

    The Yugoslav organization of the International Association of the Students of Economy and Management (AIESEC) will organize from October 16 to 21, 1996 in Belgrade and on the Kopaonik Mount, the International Conference on the achievements in the field of economy, management and environment protection. It is expected that the conference will be attended by over 100 students from 14 Mediterranean countries. (Borba, October 1, 1996)
