Yugoslav Parliament Approves Alliance with Russia, Belarus; Germany Puts Forward Kosovo Peace Plan

HeadlineApr 12, 1999

Meanwhile, Yugoslavia may be trying to draw Russia into the fighting. The Yugoslav Parliament met in an urgent session today and approved setting up an alliance with Russia and Belarus. The move comes as NATO foreign ministers convene in Belgium for the first time in three weeks. Meanwhile, Germany has put forward a Kosovo peace plan under which an OSCE-led international force, rather than NATO, would replace Serbian forces in the province, this according to Britain’s Guardian newspaper today. The OSCE is the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe. The fate of the plan is likely to hinge on the meeting of the NATO foreign ministers in Brussels.
