  • [01] YUGOSLAV PRIME MINISTER RESUMED TALKS IN PODGORICA

    Tanjug, 1998-01-14

    Yugoslav Prime Minister Radoje Kontic on Wednesday resumed talks in Podgorica on the latest political situation in Montenegro and steps aimed at its settlement, the Yugoslav Government said in a statement late on Wednesday.

    In Podgorica, Kontic is accompanied by Yugoslav Information Secretary Goran Matic.

    After comprehensively reviewing all important elements of the current situation in the intensive talks with Momir Bulatovic and Milo Djukanovic and members of the negotiating teams, an agreement was reached on the holding of the Montenegrin parliamentary elections and conditions for their holding.

    It is expected that an agreement on other most important disputed issues will be reached and that steps aimed at a peaceful and democratic settlement of the crisis in Montenegro would be agreed on in the resumption of the talks.

    A further strengthening of Montenegro and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia will be ensured only in this way, the statement said.

    [02] YUGOSLAVIA AND ROMANIA SIGN AGREEMENT ON CUSTOMS COOPERATION

    Tanjug, 1998-01-14

    Director of the Yugoslav Customs Administration Mihalj Kertes and his Romanian counterpart Nini Sapunaru signed on Wednesday in Belgrade a cooperation Agreement on customs and prevention and investigation of violations of customs regulations.

    Kertes told the press that the agreement also covered the fight against international crime, including drug and arms smuggling. Customs officials of the two countries will meet daily to resolve current problems, Kertes said.

    The agreement will intensify the already good bilateral cooperation in the field and the efficiency of both customs services, and local border traffic will be facilitated, as Serbs in Romania and Romanians in Yugoslavia constitute a bridge between the two countries, Kertes said.

    Sapunaru said the agreement was very important as it provides for direct cooperation between the two customs services and facilitates the movement of people and goods across the border. Romania plans to sign similar agreements with all its neighbours this year, he said.

    The agreement will also contribute to the overall bilateral cooperation on the basis of the inter-governmental Agreement on customs cooperation signed in Bucharest in 1970.

    [03] BOSNIA-HERZEGOVINA PRESIDENCY APPOINTS 32 OF 33 AMBASSADORS

    Tanjug, 1998-01-14

    The Bosnia-Herzegovina Presidency has appointed so far 32 of the 33 ambassadors abroad, Sarajevo media said on Wednesday. The ambassadorial post in Washington is to be filled on Monday by the appointment of a Serb, at the proposal of Republika Srpska Presidency member Momcilo Krajisnik.

    The appointment will mark the beginning of a massive change of Bosnia- Herzegovina diplomatic representatives. Of the 33 ambassadorial posts, 22 are held by the Muslim-Croat Federation, of which 13 by Muslims and 9 by Croats, and 11 are filled by Republika Srpska.

    The Presidency on Tuesday appointed ambassadors to Austria, Hungary, the United Kingdom and Canada. It has confirmed the mandates of ambassadors to Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Sweden, Italy and the Holy See, and the heads of the missions to the New York U.N. headquarters and the OSCE.

    [04] YUGOSLAVIA ADOPTS STRATEGY OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT

    Tanjug, 1998-01-14

    Information technology will be a decisive factor of stepped up economic development in the future, since it does not require the immense investments which have characterized industrial society to date, and it is an opportunity Yugoslavia must take, Yugoslav Minister of Development, Science and Ecology Jagos Zelenovic said on Wednesday.

    Presenting at a news conference a strategy of information technology development, adopted by the Yugoslav Government on November 27 last year, Minister Zelenovic stressed that Yugoslavia could make use of the offered opportunity only if it understood the world trends toward a global information society and made optimal use of its resources, especially the know-how.

    The adopted strategy sets as a goal Yugoslavia's integration into global information society through the development of the national information infrastructure, as a pre-condition of the restructuring of the national economy.

    The set goal calls for a continued elimination of state monopoly and the creation of conditions for continual competition, which is to be the motor force of the development of the national information infrastructure, Minister Zelenovic told the press.

    Zelenovic said that the strategy of information technology development was conducive to the attainment of the basic goals of social and economic development as set in the Government's development policy through the year 2005.

    The Yugoslav Government will set up a Commission which will coordinate the overall activities in the implementation of the strategy of information technology development.

    [05] YUGOSLAV DEPUTY PREMIER RECEIVED THE BRITISH AMBASSADOR

    Tanjug, 1998-01-14

    Yugoslav Deputy Prime Minister Vojin Djukanovic received on Wednesday the British Ambassador to Yugoslavia Joseph Bryan Donnelly, the Information Secretariat said in a statement.

    The present level of economic cooperation between the two countries is very low, and measures should be taken to intensify it as the former Yugoslavia used to be Britain's chief trade partner in this part of Europe, and many British companies are interested in investing in Yugoslavia and in its tourism potentials, it was noted during the meeting.

    To this end, the cooperation between Yugoslavia and the European Union should be resumed, trade measures detrimental to cooperation should be cancelled and EU trade preferences should be restored, which would enable Yugoslavia to export its goods, especially wine and agricultural produce, to Britain, the statement says.

    [06] STATEMENT ISSUED BY THE YUGOSLAV JUSTICE MINISTER

    Tanjug, 1998-01-14

    Special units and other Montenegrin Interior Ministry forces late on Wednesday dispersed in a most violent way and without any cause peaceful demonstrations against irregularities at the Montenegrin presidential elections, the demonstrations which have been scheduled and held in keeping with the law, Yugoslav Justice Minister Zoran Knezevic said in a statement.

    These aggressive operations have come at a time when representatives of the protesters and political authorities were holding talks aimed at finding a peaceful and democratic solution to the crisis with the mediation of Yugoslav Prime Minister Radoje Kontic.

    The fact that the behaviour of representatives of current political authorities caused an unjustified stalling of the talks throughout the day points at a well-prepared scenario of the organised physical attack at the protesters in the evening, which was aimed at dispersing the demonstrations.

    The use of chemical agents, firearms and combat vehicles, together with the sowing of fear and misinformation, announcements of arrests and other means have created a dramatic situation in Podgorica, which has led to the injuring of a number of citizens and there is a threat of an escalation, which may have dramatic consequences.

    The Organisation Committee of the rally and especially Montenegrin President Momir Bulatovic are investing efforts aimed at stabilising the extremely difficult situation, the statement said.

    [07] MONTENEGRIN AUTHORITIES BEGIN TALKS WITH PROTESTERS

    Tanjug, 1998-01-14

    Representatives of the Montenegrin Government and the Organization Board of a two-day protest staged by the Democratic Party of Socialists met on Wednesday to seek a way out of the state and political crisis.

    The protesters demand new presidential and early parliamentary elections, annulment of a resolution noting disregard of decisions by federal bodies, and bringing an end to activities aimed at revising the republican Constitution and calling a referendum on the state status of Montenegro.

    The talks began after a meeting on Tuesday between Yugoslav Prime Minister Radoje Kontic and Montenegrin President Momir Bulatovic and Premier Milo Djukanovic.
