MISSION TO THE "PREDSJEDNICKI DVORI" NOVEMBER 4 TO 
HEAR A STATEMENT OF CROATIAN GOVERNMENT VIEWS ON A 
RANGE OF B-H, UNPA, AND UNPROFOR-RELATED ISSUES. 
OUR RECENT DISCUSSIONS WITH TUDJMAN, REPORTED 
REFTELS, COVERED MUCH OF THIS GROUND. 
 
2.  TUDJMAN DENOUNCED ALLEGATIONS THAT CROATIA AIMS 
TO "CARVE UP" B-H OR HAD CONNIVED IN THE FALL OF 
BOSANSKI BROD OR JAJCE.  HE TERMED OWEN'S SUGGESTION 
OF IMPOSING SANCTIONS ON CROATIA "ASTONISHING." 
CROATIA HAD BEEN AMONG THE FIRST TO RECOGNIZE B-H, 
HAD APPOINTED AN AMBASSADOR TO B-H, HAD ACCEPTED OVER 
450,000 B-H REFUGEES, AND, HAD CROATIA NOT HELPED THE 
BOSNIAN CROATS ORGANIZE AGAINST SERBIAN AGGRESSION, 
WOULD NOW BE HOST TO OVER A MILLION B-H REFUGEES. 
FIGHTING AMONG BOSNIAN CROATS AND MUSLIMS RESULTED 
FROM LOCAL FACTORS, NOT FROM LEADERSHIP POLICY 
DECISIONS.  CROATIA BELIEVES B-H CAN SURVIVE AS AN 
INDEPENDENT STATE ONLY AS A UNION OF THREE 
CONSTITUENT PEOPLES -- BUT, "WITHOUT DOUBT, CROATIA 
IS FOR MAINTAINING THE SOVEREIGNTY OF B-H." 
 
3.  ON THE UNPAS AND UNPROFOR, TUDJMAN SAID THAT, 
WHILE CROATIA APPRECIATES THE ROLE THE UN PLAYED IN 
HALTING THE WAR IN CROATIA, UNPROFOR HAD FAILED IN 
ITS ESSENTIAL TASK OF DISARMING THE SERBS IN THE 
UNPAS.  HE CITED NUMEROUS INSTANCES OF HEAVY WEAPONRY 
STILL IN SERB HANDS IN THE UNPAS AND ESTIMATED 
"WELL-ARMED" SERBIAN STRENGTH IN THE UNPAS AT 18,000. 
HE CALLED FOR THE UNSC TO AUTHORIZE IMPLEMENTATION OF 
UNPROFOR'S MANDATE BY FORCE OF ARMS IF NECESSARY.  HE

THESE CIRCUMSTANCES, CROATIA COULD NOT AGREE TO

CROATIAN POLICY TOWARD B-H 
-------------------------- 
 
5.  TUDJMAN BEGAN BY COMMENTING THAT ONE NOW OFTEN 
SEES "BIASED AND ERRONEOUS" INTERPRETATIONS OF 
CROATIAN POLICY TOWARD B-H.  HE REFERRED SPECIFICALLY 
TO CLAIMS THAT CROATIA ALONE OR IN CONNIVANCE WITH 
SERBIA AIMED TO "CARVE UP" B-H AND SAID SUCH CLAIMS 
WERE UTTERLY UNFOUNDED.  CROATIA HAD NOT ONLY TRIED 
TO PREVENT THE OUTBREAK OF WAR IN B-H, IT HAD SOUGHT 
CONSISTENTLY TO END THE WAR.  NOTING "ACCUSATIONS" 
THAT FORCES FROM CROATIA ITSELF WERE ENGAGED IN B-H, 
TUDJMAN SAID THAT CROATIA HAD HELPED THE CROATS OF 
BOSNIA TO "ORGANIZE" THEMSELVES AGAINST SERBIAN/ 
MONTENEGRIN AGGRESSION AND HAD COORDINATED OPERATIONS 
WITH THEM IN CROATIA/B-H BORDER AREAS.  NOTING "VIEWS, 
EVEN FROM SERIOUS INTERNATIONAL CIRCLES," OF CROATIAN 
COMPLICITY IN THE FALL OF BOSANSKI BROD AND JAJCE, 
TUDJMAN SAID THAT THESE TOO WERE GROUNDLESS. 
 
6.  UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES, IT WAS "ASTONISHING," 
TUDJMAN STATED, THAT OWEN HAD SAID THAT THOUGHT SHOULD 
BE GIVEN TO EXTENDING SANCTIONS TO CROATIA BECAUSE OF 
ITS INVOLVEMENT IN B-H.  CROATIA'S POLICY TOWARD B-H 
HAD BEEN CONSISTENT FROM THE VERY BEGINNING.  CROATIA 
HAD BEEN AMONG THE VERY FIRST TO RECOGNIZE B-H AS A 
SOVEREIGN STATE; IT HAD APPOINTED AN AMBASSADOR TO 
B-H; AND, IN ACCORD WITH AGREEMENTS WITH IZETBEGOVIC, 
IT HAD APPOINTED ITS REPRESENTATIVES TO AGREED JOINT

SELF-DEFENSE, THERE WOULD NOW BE FEW IF ANY CROATS 
LEFT IN B-H AND OVER A MILLION REFUGEES IN CROATIA. 
 
7.  TUDJMAN ADMITTED THERE HAD BEEN "A FEW" INSTANCES 
OF CONFLICT BETWEEN BOSNIAN CROATS AND MUSLIMS; THESE, 
HOWEVER, ORIGINATED FROM LOCAL DISPUTES, NOT AS A 
RESULT OF POLICY DECISIONS BY EITHER LEADERSHIP. 
BOTH SIDES HAVE TAKEN STEPS TO PREVENT RECURRENCES.

8.  TUDJMAN SAID THAT THE ALREADY VERY DIFFICULT 
SITUATION REGARDING NATIONAL, ETHNIC, AND RELIGIOUS 
RELATIONS IN B-H WAS MADE EVEN MORE DIFFICULT BY THE 
EXISTENCE OF COMMUNIST HOLDOVERS ON THE SERBIAN SIDE 
AND THE PRESENCE OF MUJAHIDIN IN MUSLIM RANKS. 
CROATIA SEES B-H AS THE EPITOME OF ALL OF THE MOST 
CRITICAL PROBLEMS OF THE FORMER YUGOSLAVIA, HE ADDED. 
THE SITUATION IN B-H MUST BE RESOLVED FOR THE GOOD OF 
CROATIAN, EUROPEAN, AND EVEN GLOBAL INTERESTS.  BASED 
ON ITS HISTORICAL EXPERIENCE, CROATIA BELIEVED THAT 
B-H COULD SURVIVE AS AN INDEPENDENT STATE ONLY AS A 
UNION OF THREE CONSTITUENT PEOPLES. 
 
9.  TUDJMAN SAID THAT IN RECENT TALKS WITH 
IZETBEGOVIC CROATIA HAD ESTABLISHED THE BASIS FOR 
RESOLVING ALL MISUNDERSTANDINGS, NOT ONLY BETWEEN 
CROATIA AND B-H BUT ALSO BETWEEN BOSNIAN CROATS AND 
MUSLIMS.  IZETBEGOVIC AGREED WITH THIS ASSESSMENT, 
TUDJMAN CLAIMED.  AND IZETBEGOVIC HAD ACCEPTED THAT 
THE PRESIDENCY OF B-H SHOULD INCLUDE CROATIAN 
REPRESENTATIVES CHOSEN BY THE BOSNIAN CROATS 
THEMSELVES.  "WITHOUT DOUBT," TUDJMAN AFFIRMED, 
CROATIA "IS FOR MAINTAINING THE SOVEREIGNTY OF B-H."

THE ESSENTIAL TASK OF DISARMING THE SERBS IN THE 
UNPAS, TUDJMAN STRESSED.  UNPROFOR HAS GOTTEN THE JNA

IN THE UNPAS AND NOW HAVE A STRENGTH OF AROUND 18,000 
ORGANIZED, WELL-ARMED MEN.  IN SECTOR EAST, FOR 
EXAMPLE, AROUND BELI MANASTIR, SERBIAN FORCES HAVE 16 
APC'S "PAINTED BLUE" (PRESUMABLY "MILITIA-BLUE") PLUS 
10 T-34 TANKS, AND FIVE MORE TANKS IN BATINA.  IN 
SECTOR WEST, NOT ALL OF THE HEAVY WEAPONRY IS 30 KM 
FROM THE BORDER, AS REQUIRED; IN ONE LOCALE ALONE -- 
ON THE BORDER -- THE SERBS HAVE 7 TANKS AND 2 MORTAR 
BATTERIES.  IN SECTOR NORTH, AROUND GLINA AND VIRGIN 
MOST, THERE ARE SUBSTANTIAL NUMBERS OF SERB-HELD 
TANKS AND APC'S.  AND IN OTHER AREAS, WHERE HEAVY 
ARMS HAVE SUPPOSEDLY BEEN ROUNDED UP, THEY ARE NOT 
WELL SECURED.  IN SECTOR SOUTH, THE SERBS HAVE 9 
TANKS, PLUS ARTILLERY AND MORTARS, AT GRACAC, AS WELL 
AS TANKS AT DRNIS.  IN KNIN, THERE IS A SERB- 
CONTROLLED COMPANY OF T-55 TANKS.  IN BARANJA (SECTOR 
EAST), THERE IS VIRTUALLY A NON-STOP FERRY OF ARMS 
AND PERSONNEL TO AND FROM SERBIA. 
 
12.  TUDJMAN ARGUED THAT THE SECURITY COUNCIL MUST 
AUTHORIZE UNPROFOR TO IMPLEMENT THEIR MANDATE, EVEN 
IF THAT REQUIRES RESORTING TO ARMS.  AMONG OTHER 
UNPROFOR SHORTCOMINGS, THERE HAD BEEN VIRTUALLY 
NOTHING DONE TO PERMIT THE RETURN OF THE DISPLACED. 
ON THE CONTRARY, EVEN UNDER THE EYES OF UNPROFOR NEW 
CRIMES ARE BEING COMMITTED BY SERBS.  IN SECTOR EAST, 
FOR EXAMPLE, THERE HAVE BEEN 600 (PRESUMABLY 
NON-SERBS) KILLED SINCE THE DEPLOYMENT OF UNPROFOR. 
IN BARANJA, NOT ONLY CROATS ARE PERSECUTED AND 
KILLED, BUT ALL NON-SERB NATIONALITIES, ESPECIALLY 
HUNGARIANS.  IN ADDITION, THE VANCE PLAN HAS NOT BEEN

PERUCA DAM, WHICH SUPPLIES MUCH OF DALMATIA'S POWER 
-- AND ALL THIS BECAUSE OF THE INACTIVITY OF 
UNPROFOR, AND THEIR PERMITTING EXTREMIST ELEMENTS OF 
SERBS VIRTUALLY TO RUN FREE IN THE UNPAS. 
 
13.  CONTINUING, TUDJMAN SAID THAT UNPROFOR HAD ALSO 
NOT IMPLEMENTED ITS MANDATE TO CONTROL THE BORDERS 
BETWEEN CROATIA AND SERBIA AND BETWEEN CROATIA AND 
B-H.  HE ALLEGED EVIDENCE OF THE SERBS VIOLATING THE

SANCTIONS AGAINST IMPORT OF OIL AND OTHER GOODS INTO 
SERBIA/MONTENEGRO -- WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF UNPROFOR. 
 
14.  TUDJMAN SAID THE CROATIAN GOVERNMENT WOULD SEND 
A MEMORANDUM TO THE UN SECRETARY GENERAL.  HE ASKED 
THAT OTHER GOVERNMENTS SUPPORT CROATIA'S STAND. 
CROATIA WANTS UNPROFOR IMMEDIATELY TO IMPLEMENT THE 
VANCE PLAN, TUDJMAN EMPHASIZED.  IN THAT REGARD, 
UNPROFOR CAN CONTINUE TO COUNT ON CROATIAN 
COOPERATION.  BUT, UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES, CROATIA 
COULD NOT AGREE TO AN EXTENSION OF UNPROFOR'S 
MANDATE, BECAUSE SERBIAN ELEMENTS ARE USING IT 
(UNPROFOR'S PRESENCE) TO CONSOLIDATE THEIR POSITION 
IN THE UNPAS AND IN NEIGHBORING AREAS OF B-H. 
 
15.  TUDJMAN SAID CROATIA HAD PROVIDED THE POLITICAL 
PREREQUISITES FOR A RESOLUTION OF THE BASIC PROBLEM 
IN THE UNPAS (PRESUMABLY A REFERENCE TO THE LAW ON 
ABOLITION).  HE REFERRED TO SEVERAL INSTANCES IN 
WHICH GROUPS OF CROATIAN SERBS HAD VOLUNTARILY 
SURRENDERED ARMS "FORCED ON THEM BY THE JNA" IN 
HOPES OF NORMALIZING THEIR STATUS IN CROATIA. 
NONETHELESS, HE SAID, THE SITUATION IS WORSENING 
BECAUSE OF EXTREMIST ELEMENTS SUPPLIED BY BELGRADE. 
 
16.  HE SAID THAT CROATIA IS READY TO IMPLEMENT THE 
LAW ON LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT, INCLUDING IN THE 
SERBIAN AREAS, IN THE CONTEXT OF HOLDING ELECTIONS TO 
THE SECOND CHAMBER OF THE SABOR IN THE COMING 
TWO-THREE MONTHS.  IN THE MEANTIME, CROATIA WILL PASS 
A LAW AIMED AT CONTROLLING FURTHER ENCROACHMENTS ON
