Yugoslavia: Solana And Milosevic Complete Talks

Belgrade, 7 November 1997 (RFE/RL) - Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic and NATO Secretary General Javier Solana completed talks today in Belgrade on the situation in Bosnia.

The independent Belgrade-based news agency BETA reports that in a meeting that lasted just under two hours, talks focused mostly on cooperating with the international court at The Hague and the situation with the media in Bosnia's Serb entity.

Solana was accompanied to Belgrade by supreme allied commander in Europe, General Wesley Clark.

The two made an earlier stop in Sarajevo where Solana met with senior Bosnian mediator Carlos Westendorp.

Western officials have consistently pressed Belgrade to cooperate with the International Tribunal at The Hague, which is seeking custody of indicted war crimes suspects from throughout the former Yugoslavia. The media in the Bosnian Serb entity has been a source of conflict between its president, Biljana Plavsic and supporters of indicted war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic.
