Listen to BarBalkans podcast: June ’93. Everything is changing
The war in Bosnia and Herzegovina is becoming more complicated. Everything that was true just a few months ago is no longer relevant, both on the ground and diplomatically. Violence has become overwhelming between Bosnian Croats and Bosniaks in Central Bosnia, where the city of Mostar is at the center of armed clashes.
As Bosnian Serbs continue to siege the cities in Eastern Bosnia, a clash with Belgrade has emerged as a result of Republika Srpska’s opposition to the Vance-Owen Plan. However, this peace plan is now put aside even by the international community. The priority of the new Action Plan is the end of the war, not the territorial integrity of Bosnia. This is how the President of Serbia, Slobodan Milošević, gains strength both on the international scene and in the domestic political arena, where he starts purging his opponents.
