PARIS - The vicepresident of the Republic of Srpska /RS/ Nikola Koljevic had a series of meetings in Paris with the representatives of the Serbian Diaspora. He also talked with officials of the French Foreign Ministry about humanitarian aspects of the situation in Srpska. While commenting on the possibility of establishing official relations between France and Srpska, Koljevic said that "there exists the will for establish ing relations". As SRNA learns, Koljevic and the advisor to the RS president, Jovan Zametica, will soon visit London in order to contact representatives of the British Government and the Serb Diaspora.
BIJELJINA - The RS commissar for refugees, Dragan Kekic, told SRNA that "more than 40 refugee centers have been opened in Srpska, accomadating some 10,000 Serbs from Sarajevo". Kekic added that 30,000 Sarajevo Serbs are accommodated in abandoned homes, and pointed out that the number of Serbs leaving Sarajevo is increasing. "Additional refugee centers will therefore be opened in the eastern part of Srpska", Kekic said.
SARAJEVO - The Croat/Muslim police entered the Serb Sarajevo municipality of Hadzici this morning at 10:30 hrs, reported AFP.
SARAJEVO - The organised evacuation of the Serbs and their property from the Serb municipality of Hadzici was completed last night.
SARAJEVO - After the last Serb has left Hadzici, Croatian police from Kiseljak entered this Serb municipality last night. Acting upon the request of the IPTF, 120 IFOR soldiers surrounded the police station in Hadzici and threw out 18 Croat policemen from it this morning at 8:40 hrs.
NOVI SAD - One of the leading European writers, Peter Handke, rejected accusations that the Serbs were aggressors in the war in the former Yugoslavia. In an interview for Nasa Borba, Handke said that "the Serbian people could not have tolerated Croatian terror", pointing out that 2,000,000 Serbs had lived in Croatia before WWII, while only 600,000 Serbs remained there. "Following their tragic experiences with the Ustashe, the Serbs could not have accepted minority status", said Handke.
ATHENS - The Greek paper Elephtherotypia assessed the speech of Serbian president Slobodan Milosevic at the Congress of the Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) as "conceited and without a sense for reality". The paper assessed as being most cynic those parts of Milosevic's speech in which he pointed out that the Serbian people in Srpska and the Srpska Krajina were the subject of Serbia's solidarity, being, as they were, the recipient of moth erly and moral support. "Milosevic forgot the 18-month embargo which he imposed against Srpska and the Srpska Krajina and he calls upon them to express their gratitude for this. At the very least, this is cynical", said the paper.
