Slovenec: A Bird in the Hand Is Worth Two in the Bush

Miran Mejak, Head of Slovene Delegation in the Working Group for the Succession of Yugoslavia at the International Conference on Former Yugoslavia in Geneva, said in an interview for daily Slovenec that European Union and Russia are recently very close to the opinions of Belgrade. In his report from the meeting of the Working Group for Succession in Geneva last December, Mejak said that Slovenia cannot accept ZR Yugoslavia to be the successor of former Yugoslavia.*** Mejak said that Belgrade wants to include in the second part of the agreement on legal succession the regulations on sharing all foreign debts among all the new succeeding states, and the key for sharing liabilities and assets of former Yugoslavia. This would cause unsettled relations of debtors with foreign investors for a period of time, which would be of benefit mainly to Srbia and Monte Negro. Mejak states that Srbian President managed to lead Europe into a quarrel, therefore the Slovenes have to take care of themselves and leave the Balkans melting pot as soon as possible.
