CLEVELAND - Based upon two American peace agreements - Washington and Dayton agreements - the Former B-H, in stead of intermingling within a multiethnic and independent stated, is all the more heading towards a final ethnical division, assess the U.S. media. The media refer to grave problems between the federal partners, adding that the involvement of NATO forces in Hadzici in dispute between the Croats and Muslims, only proves that a rift in the Federation, which was assumed to be a found of stabil ity of the Dayton state of B-H, is becoming ever deeper.
ATHENS - The Greek media report of serious problems in the functioning of the CroatMuslim Federation, claiming that Ameri- canforced "marriage of opportunity" of two proved enemies, cannot last very long. Numerous clashes in Mostar and other places of the Federation confirm such claims, as well as recent statements of Federal president Kresimir Zubak, like "the Muslims and Croats have completely different views of the Federation", which represents a real danger of renewed fighting.
