JAN. 22, 1997 DAY


BANJALUKA - The participants at the round table about the issue of "Brcko - the strategic interest of Republika Srpska" , see this town as "an integral part of RS and the basic precondition for the realisation of its right to have special ties with Yugoslavia, which are called for in the Dayton agreement. About hundred representatives of 10 political parties, seven social organisations and associations, nine deputies in the RS National Assembly, four members of the expert team for the arbitration over the boundary line in this area and representatives of seven international institutions and organisations gathered in the House of the Army of Republika Srpska (RS) in Banjaluka.

SARAJEVO - RS minister of industry and energy, Milorad Skoko, and the deputy minister for transportation and communications, Dragan Pejanovic, talked in Pale with a Norwegian delegation about the 1997 cooperation in these areas. After the meeting, minister Skoko said that they also discussed about the finding out of the most optimal modalities of cooperation, having in mind that the Norwegian government has approved the $15,000,000,000 aid for the 1997 reconstruction of the Dayton B&H. "During the talks, we gave most of our attention to the fields of electrical industry, i.e. to the distribution of electricity and the field of telecommunications", pointed out Skoko, adding that they have emphasised to the Norwegian representatives that the priority should be given to the low- tension grid on the areas of the western Hercegovina, the western part of the Krajina and Mt.Ozren.

SARAJEVO - RS minister for agriculture, forestry and water management, Djojo Arsenovic, talked in Pale with representatives of the Swedish company "Gespa International" and the Federation of the Swedish farmers about the concrete aspects of cooperation in the field of the agriculture and water supply. "The representatives of the two Swedish companies are willing to cooperate with RS and they have the concrete suggestions for the cooperation in the field of the agriculture and water supply", explained Arsenovic. He confirmed that the Swedes are ready to help in "the planning, preparation and realisation of the certain projects, as in the sphere of agriculture so and in the sphere of water supply".

SARAJEVO - A member of the Provisional Electoral Commission (PEC) from RS, Slobodan Kovac, stated for SRNA that the PEC is working on to bring closer the positions and on the adoption of rules for the municipal elections in the Dayton B&H, which are to be held in the mid-1997. With a view to prevent the manipulation with the lists of candidates to be repeated, the OSCE drafted the framework rules for the local elections in RS and the Federation of B&H and delivered them to the PEC so to be further considered and adopted. "The OSCE's proposal includes the basic terms of the rules for the elections on the higher level, which should, with certain modifications and in accordance with the conclusions of the London conference, be adopted by the PEC", stressed Kovac.

BELGRADE - One of the leaders of the Zajedno [Together] coalition, the head of the Democratic Party, Zoran Djindjic, said that "nothing can be achieved in Serbia by violence, so nor by the terroristic actions on Kosovo". "The government accused the Zajedno coalition and students of such terroristic actions on Kosovo, which only showed that this regime will use all means so to remain on power", said Djidjic at the 64th opposition's meeting in Belgrade.

BELGRADE - The spokesman of the '96/97 students' protest, Bojan Bogdanovic, stated that one part of the students' delegation which has been for several days visiting the USA will meet in Washington with the Assistant US Secretary of State for the Balkans, John Kornblum. At a news conference in Belgrade he pointed out that the other part of this delegation is going to pay a visit to the French Embassy in USA and the State Department where they are expected to talk with the Commission on analysis of political relations in the Dayton B&H and Balkans.

BELGRADE - The head of the Serbian Radical Party (SRS), Vojislav Seselj, received in the Yugoslavian Assembly the leader of the National Front of France (NFF), Jean Marie Lepen. During the talks Seselj pointed out that "the regime in Serbia tried - with the help of the courts - to annul the Zajedno coalition's victory in more than 30 towns and to open 3rd, 4th, 5th and even 6th round of the elections and thus provoke a chaos. "

BELGRADE - The presidents of Serbia and Montenegro, Slobodan Milosevic and Momir Bulatovic, respectively, agreed to in Belgrade that "the firm unity of Serbia and Monetengro and the strengthening of Yugoslavia are the guarantor for the country's successful development."
