SARAJEVO - Parliamentarian and presidential elections in Republika Srpska (RS) must be in function of elimination of the current crisis in the Republic, stated the president in the Presidency of B-H from RS, Momcilo Krajisnik, pointing out the necessity of holding both elections. At his meeting with the OSCE Mission chief Robert Frowick in Pale, president Krajisnik restated that "time between presidential and parliamentarian elections must be as short as possible". "Mr Frowick was presented out position that both elections are closely linked, and we said that we could not accept that, for example, only parliamentarian elections are held this year and presidential postponed for a certain amount of time", Krajisnik explained, and expressed his hope that in the coming period the technical problems would be addressed, while the holding of the elections itself should not be disputable.

SARAJEVO - The editor-in-chief of the Belgrade paper "Drzava" Dragoljub Kojcic and its foreign policy editor Zoran Antic took part at the public tribune "About Freedom of Media" organised by the Serb Radio-TV (SRT) in Pale. "We came to Pale to give support to the SRT, which was brutally denied its right to broadcast by the international community, to persist in pursuing its goals", Kojcic stated. He said that the USA clearly demonstrated here that they did not respect one of the basic human rights - freedom of information - and expressed his conviction that "RS and SRT will win this battle, as they have won all others."

BIJELJINA - The president of the Serbian National Alliance (SNSRS), Svetozar Mihailovic, said in Bijeljina that this Party was ready for the up- coming elections. Committed to the Belgrade agreement, Mihailovic is hopeful that the disputes over SRT broadcast from Pale will be solved soon.

BEOGRAD - The commercial director of the Yugosav Air Transport (JAT), Borivoje Kovacevic, stated in Belgrade that flights for Banjaluka and Sarajevo have not been established yet because SFOR has not issued permission. He said that "JAT is ready to establish the lines, but is still waiting for SFOR's response to its requests."

SARAJEVO - SFOR suspended "every move or training" of the B- H Federation Army until it proves that the Army does not hold war prisoners, says SFOR spokesman Chris Raily in Sarajevo.

MOSTAR - The City Council in Ploce rejected the draft agreement on renting Ploce port to the B-H Federation worked out by the US Arbitration Commission, and concluded that the agreement was based upon threat ruining Croatia's sovereignty, lack of Croatian identity and loosing of the Neretva valley and city of Ploce. The proposal to allocate Ploce port to the B-H Federation and make it a free zone in B-H ownership and under B-H regulations the Council assessed as unacceptable, for it would disregard Croatian legislation.
