Montenegro Secession From Yugoslavia May Destabilise Balkans

Montenegro's prospective secession from Yugoslavia might destabilise the situation in the entire Balkan region, the United Nations human rights envoy to the former Yugoslavia, Jiri Dinstbier, told journalists Tuesday. According to Dinstbier, Montenegro's alienation from Serbia has flared up nationalist trends in other parts of the region, including Kosovo. Dinstbier expressed hope that the returns of the parliamentary elections in Montenegro would not spark off a conflict between the republic and Belgrade. The UN human rights envoy to the former Yugoslavia believes that living as part of a union is more preferable for the majority of Montenegrins than living on their own. In his opinion, the government system for a new Yugoslavia should be determined via negotiations. Such talks would be difficult, as the bulk of Montenegrins and international community want the federation preserved, Jiri Dinstbier warned.
