Yugoslavia, Montenegro separation to speed up Balkan division process

In case Montenegro and Kosovo are separated from Yugoslavia, the process of Balkan division may assume stupendous proportions, Predrad Simic, foreign policy advisor to Yugoslav President Vojislav Kostunica, was quoted as saying at a meeting Monday with a delegation of Austrian intellectuals in Graz. Predrad Simic does not rule out that in this case Macedonia will also fall apart, to be followed by Bosnia Herzegovina and South Serbia. The presidential foreign policy advisor believes that the West should not have put "at a sharp angle" the question of Montenegro's separation from the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. He noted that the West is still keeping the mum, or is not giving due attention to crimes which Albanian extremists are committing in Kosovo and to evil acts by the so-called "Kosovo liberation army" against Albanian civilians. "The West attributes all evil deeds and violence exclusively to Serbians, who through NATO efforts appear as criminals in the eyes of the Western public," said Simic. According to him, Yugoslavia now has a "pro-European bias." "Our only hope is to be integrated into Europe," he said. For that, Belgrade "needs European finances," said the Yugoslav presidential advisor. The pact on stabilisation of countries of Southeastern Europe is not enough for the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, said Simic.
