Delo: Not Much Law, a Lot of Politics
Ljubljana, 9 March - PRESS/BOSNIA/BRCKO
The international community had postponed deciding on Brcko as long as it could, which was the only sensible thing to do, the major Slovene daily writes in Tuesday issues. When the price of hesitating was getting to high and when any further wavering was to become counterproductive, it adopted a decision that, although wrapped into the cellophane of legal arbitration, was the only possible political solution: Brcko was proclaimed a neutral territory that belongs to neither of the two entities and comes under an internationally controlled common administration. Any other, for Serbs more favourable decision would mock the United Nations Charter, despite a number of international conventions and other instruments of international law.
