[A] YUGOSLAVIA - NORWAY

[01] YUGOSLAV FOREIGN MINISTER, NORWEGIAN DIPLOMAT DISCUSS COOPERATION

Belgrade, April 26 (Tanjug) - Yugoslav Foreign Minister Milan Milutinovic on Thursday met with Secretary of State at the Norwegian Foreign Ministry Jan Egeland.

The two sides discussed possibilities for a further upgrading of bilateral relations and cooperation, and situation regarding the peace process in the former Yugoslavia.

Norway's balanced approach and engagement during the crisis in the former Yugoslavia was recognized.

Milutinovic informed Egeland about Yugoslavia's stands and activities in the Bosnia peace process and efforts for a consistent implementation of all aspects of the Dayton agreement.

[02] TALKS ON PROMOTION OF RELATIONS

Belgrade, April 25 (Tanjug) - Foreign Ministry delegations of Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and Norway discussed Thursday in Belgrade the promotion of bilateral relations and the peace process in the former Yugoslavia.

Yugoslav Assistant Foreign Minister Zivadin Jovanovic and Secretary of State in Norwegian Foreign Ministry Jan Egeland, who head the two delegations, pointed to the favourable conditions for reviving and promoting bilateral cooperation in political, economic, cultural, humanitarian and other fields.

They also pointed to good cooperation prospects in trade, technology transfer, shipbuilding, health, tourism and technical training.

Yugoslav delegation expressed appreciation of Norway's participation in international peace efforts, especially the endeavors of its eminent diplomats in the negotiating process and civilian and humanitarian activities.

Yugoslav delegation also expressed gratitude to Norway for its great contribution to the alleviation of humanitarian problems of about 700,000 refugees from various areas of former Yugoslavia who have found shelter in F.R.Y.

Egeland said after the meeting that he had come to Belgrade on an important mission aimed at giving an impetus to the overall normalization of bilateral relations in all fields. A new Norwegian ambassador will be sent to Belgrade shortly to resume all diplomatic contacts, Egeland said.

Both countries believe that the situation in the former Yugoslavia is now much better than Norwegian officials observed during past visits.

The two delegations also discussed the building of a Norwegian village for about 200 refugees now living in inadequate accommodation near Belgrade.

Jovanovic said it was established during the talks that all conditions had been met for the development of bilateral cooperation in all fields.


[B] YUGOSLAVIA - D.P.R. KOREA

[03] ALL WORLD'S PROBLEMS MUST BE SOLVED PEACEFULLY

Belgrade, April 25 (Tanjug) - The necessity for a negotiated and peaceful settlement of all problems, questions outstanding and misunderstandings in the world was stressed at a meeting between Yugoslav President Zoran Lilic and a parliamentary delegation of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on Thursday.

The D.P.R. Korean Supreme People's Assembly delegation, headed by the Assembly's Standing Committee General Secretary Li Mong Ho, is on a several-day visit to Yugoslavia.

The necessity to strengthen the role of organizations and instruments that would lead more efficiently to a peaceful solution of problems in the world was stressed in the talks.

Lilic said he believed that the problem on the Korean peninsula would be solved in a peaceful way.

He said that the long-term and friendly bilateral relations offered great possibilities for stepping up especially economic cooperation.


[C] YUGOSLAVIA - COUNCIL OF EUROPE

[04] YUGOSLAVIA STRONGLY SUPPORTS DAYTON ACCORD EMPLACEMENT

Strasbourg, April 25 (Tanjug) - The Federal Republic of Yugoslavia strongly supports the implementation of the civilian part of the Dayton peace accord, Yugoslav Parliament Chamber of Citizens Speaker Radoman Bozovic said in Strasbourg on Thursday.

Bozovic was speaking in a Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly debate on the implementation of the Dayton peace accord for Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Bozovic said that the civilian aspects should be given full attention after the achievement of the military goals, in order to stabilise peace in Bosnia-Herzegovina and make it durable.

Yugoslavia is fully in agreement with bringing all war criminals to justice, and urges a just and undiscriminating approach in the matter, which is evident from its consent to the opening of the Hague-based War Crimes Tribunal's office in Belgrade, he added.

Bozovic is heading the Yugoslav delegation which is attending the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly's session as a special guest.

He said that Yugoslavia expected equal treatment of the Republika Srpska and the Muslim-Croat Federation to be the guiding principle in the economic reconstruction of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Yugoslavia strongly supports the international community's efforts for democratic elections in Bosnia-Herzegovina to be held under equal conditions for both Bosnian entities, Bozovic said.

Bozovic said that, despite Yugoslavia's constructive and peaceful policy, its status in the work of the U.N. General Assembly and other international organizations had not been regulated. This hampers the development of normal cooperation with the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank and prevents Yugoslavia from establishing foreign economic ties which are very important to making democratic economic and social reforms, he said.

He stressed Yugoslavia's firm european orientation, which envisages for establishing as close links with the European Union as possible.

He said that Belgrade had normalised relations with Macedonia, recognised Slovenia and Bosnia-Herzegovina and was in the process of regulating relations with Croatia.

The Yugoslav Government has invited ethnic Albanian leaders in the province of Kosovo-Metohija to a dialogue to regulate all their minority rights in the state they live in, Bozovic said, answering allegations about problems in that southern Serbian province. Ethnic Albanians in Kosovo-Metohija are in a position to enjoy the rights, conforming to the highest international standards, as enjoyed by the ethnic Hungarians, Slovaks, Romanians, Muslims and the other minorities in Yugoslavia, he said.

In the matter of the continuity of and succession to Yugoslavia, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia is willing to open immediate contacts with the new body of the Council of Europe in charge of this problem, Bozovic said. Also, it is willing to discuss it in bilateral contacts with all former Yugoslav republics, he added.

The best stimulus to this Yugoslav policy would be Yugoslavia's full reintegration in all European international institutions, including the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly, Bozovic said.


[D] YUGOSLAVIA - GREECE

[05] ATHENS DECIDES TO UPGRADE DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH YUGOSLAVIA

Athens, April 25 (Tanjug) - The Greek Government has decided to upgrade diplomatic relations with the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia to the ambassadorial level.

Yugoslav Charge d'Affaires in Athens Gojko Skopelja was informed about a decision to this end, taken in agreement with the declaration that the European Union adopted on April 9.

The Greek Government expressed its readiness to further promote cooperation with Yugoslavia, and said it was confident that a step to this end would help improve Yugoslavia's relations with the European Union. .
