6 SEPTEMBER, 1995

After the renewed NATO airstrikes on Serb positions (05/09/95 , 1400 hours), and the fulfilment of the conditions by NATO and the UN as set down by the Government of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the planned meeting for Friday 9 September in Geneva will go ahead. The meeting will made up of the Foreign Affairs Ministers from Bosnia, Croatia and ‘"FRY".

The aim of the Bosnian delegation is to establish constitutional solutions which will guarantee the reintegration of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

For the Government of Bosnia and Herzegovina it is unacceptable for any type of existence of the "Republic Srpska” in Bosnia, and its confederational linking with Serbia proper. We see a future Bosnia and Herzegovina as a Republic in which the Serbian side would have autonomy, and the possibility of special relations with Serbia.

For the Government of Bosnia and Herzegovina it is unacceptable to hold discussions regarding the areas of Gorazde and Brcko as these areas are an integral part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. On the issue of Gorazde and Brcko there will be no bargaining.

Any peace initiative which is based on the idea that the crisis will be solved by dividing Bosnia into equal parts, is totally unacceptable for the Government of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Government of Bosnia and Herzegovina supports the actions of the UN units in monitoring the withdrawal of heavy' weapons by Karadzic’s Serbs from around Sarajevo, which the Serbs are still failing to comply with.
