JULY 26, 1998 DAY


DOBOJ - The President in the B&H Presidency from Republika Srpska(RS), Momcilo Krajisnik said yesterday in Doboj that the Serbian Democratic Party (SDS) "has great chances on the forthcoming elections", because people, as he put it, "realised that the state is govern at the moment by schismatic, communists and parties from the FB&H".

DOBOJ - The President of the SDS Presidency, Dragan Kalinic, judged yesterday in Doboj that the Deputy High Representative for B&H, Hans Schumacher, "stated unjustified accusations that mufti Halilovic could not have been buried in Banjaluka" and according to that "spontaneous reaction of the people" was registered in Banjaluka. "Supporting the idea for the mufti to be buried in Banjaluka the international community made a wrong conclusion about people's mood in this area" - said Kalinic, adding that same thing happened in Doboj and Derventa some time ago during return of Muslims to Srebrenica". Kalinic said that he respected the everybody's wish to be buried where ever they want if circumstances allow it.

CLEVELAND - The U.S. have given up a secret plan to arrest the former RS President, Radovan Karadzic, and a general, Ratko Mladic, because the U.S. commanders have fear of bloodshed and great number of dead, due to revenge, what would provoke riots and renewal of the war in the Balkans - said for the "New York Times" high officials of the Clinton's administration. According to the same paper, one of the reasons for their giving up the plan to arrest Dr, Radovan Karadzic and a general Ratko Mladic, is that French commanders are not very wiling to carry out the action. Citing the anonymous statements of the U.S. Government officials, paper says that not even the White House, including the President Clinton himself, could persuade the U.S. military commanders that a risk of arresting the two Serbian leaders is much more valuable than eventual political gains.

TEHERAN - Iranian Defence Minister, Ali Samkhani, confirmed yesterday that a middle range missile, made in Iran, was tested on Wednesday - DPA reports.
