SARAJEVO - The president in the Presidency of B&H from Republika Srpska /RS/ Momcilo Krajisnik pointed out to U.S. president Bill Clinton that the main reason why Serbs are opposing to the unitary B&H is the fear of domination of Muslims. "I explained to Mr. Clinton that more than 90% of Serbs from RS would like unification of RS with Serbia, i.e. FR Yugoslavia just because of the fear of Muslim domination" - explained Mr. Krajisnik in the press release in Pale. Assessing the talks with U.S. president "as very useful", Krajisnik said that "Serbian party today, for the first time had opportunity to present its stance and explain that Serbs are not so black as others are presenting them in the world".

SARAJEVO - The assistant of the High international Representative for B&H Michael Schumacher, in Pale, pointed out the need of faster solving formalities and conveyed the wish of the Office of High representative that the constitutive session of the RS Parliamentary Assembly be held until the end of the year.

"The conditions under which we had got the cash resources are extremely favourable, because it is the credit approved for the period of 35 years, with the grace period of 10 years, and interest rate of 1%, for which I hope that will not be significantly increased in the following period" - explained Mr. Simic.
