Balkan Update

May 29, 1993

The U.N. Security Council will act by the middle of next week on a plan to create Muslim safe areas in Bosnia, Secretary of State Warren M. Christopher predicted in Washington.

With the plan facing growing opposition in both Bosnia and the Security Council, United Nations Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali was considering calling a conference to adopt a new peace plan.

Commanders of Muslim-led government and Croatian forces in Bosnia agreed on the limits of a U.N. mandated safe area around SARAJEVO, but rebel Serbians besieging the city failed to attend the talks.

Fighting in Sarajevo and towns north of the capital was some of the heaviest since a May 9 cease-fire was signed by ethnic Serbian and Muslim-led government forces.
