Balkan Update

August 31, 1993

The peace talks in GENEVA failed to resume as scheduled. They were pushed back to Tuesday because Bosnia's Muslim President, Alija Izetbegovic, had difficulty leaving Sarajevo.

Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic said it was too late for the Muslims to bargain over the map and warned they could lose everything in a two-way carve-up between Serbs and Croats if they tried.

The U.N. Security Council condemned the use of U.N. troops as pawns in the Bosnian war as at least Spanish peacekeepers spent the fifth day trapped in the Muslim sector of MOSTAR.
