Clinton with Serbian-Americans and in re NATO

[citing a participant in the meeting]

Clinton also said that he would like to see Serbia a part of the European
Union, after a transitional phase in which all former Yugoslavia's
were treated as a "mini-EU."

Finally, he said that the peacekeeping troops which may be needed in
after the current war ends do not need to be NATO, but rather an
international peacekeeping troops.

As a result of this new-found Washington "flexibility" toward the Serbs,
the Clinton administration proposed to send to Belgrade Jesse Jackson, on
condition he would be allowed to see the three captured American soldiers.

But when the Serb delegation suggested that he must first stop the
Clinton replied that he could not do that, as the very existence of NATO
was at stake.
