Namely, it is quite certain that the US troops will withdraw from the B&H in July, 1998 - this being a time of the expiring of the SFOR mandate - even though the US president Bill Clinton believes that it will be necessary to extend the mandate of SFOR's for another 14 months. Besides the talks with officials of the Pentagon, the delegation of the Council of Ministers, which is comprised of the co-chairmen, Boro Bosic and Haris Silajdzic, and the deputy minister of foreign affairs, Dragan Bozanic, also had a series of meetings at the US Congress and State Department.

SARAJEVO - The decision on the holding of the elections in Brcko is a firm, but the statements made by officials of the FB&H, in other words their threats of boycott, are spreading unrest, and we condemn such moves, stated the High Representative's spokesman, Colum Murphy, at a press conference in Pale. 'The electoral process announced by the ambassador Robert Frowick, is progressing and is also backed by the High Representative. The arbiter for Brcko, Roberts Owen, stated clearly that the party which obstructs the rules will be called to account', warned Murphy at the conference.

AMSTERDAM - The decision made by The Hague Tribunal on the declaring of Dusan Tadic guilty for the crimes committed against mankind is just aimed to keep the conferring of this institution, considers a famous professor of law at a Washington University, Diana Orentletcher.
