United States to Participate in Yugoslavia Donors Conference

Secretary Powell has decided that the United States will participate in the June 29 European Commission and World Bank Donors Conference for the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in Brussels.

U.S. participation has been made possible by the recent steps taken by the Yugoslav and Serbian governments to meet Belgrade's obligation to cooperate fully with the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and by Belgrade's commitments to transfer indicted war criminals to The Hague and fulfill all legal obligations to the Tribunal.

In attending the conference, the U.S. is expressing strong support for building a democratic and progressive society in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and overcoming the legacy of Slobodan Milosevic. We also strongly support the steadfast commitment of the Yugoslav authorities to economic reform.

Disbursement of the U.S. assistance pledged at the conference will be contingent upon Yugoslavia's further steps to cooperate fully with the Tribunal.

Ambassador Larry Napper, coordinator for Eastern European Assistance, will lead the United States delegation at the conference.
