The European Parliament passes a new resolution on Yugoslavia

Ljubljana, 22 November - The European Parliament announced that it supports the European Community's decision to freeze all agreements on cooperation between the ECM and Yugoslavia as also the EC's intention to call an international embargo on oil exports to Yugoslavia within the frame of the United Nations, but added that it was unacceptable that this embargo should affect all the inhabitants of former Yugoslavia and demanded that concrete compensational measures be taken immediately. The European Parliament also stated that international recognition could only be granted to the republics that have requested it upon the receipt of detailed assurances of the republics' intention to respect the human rights of all citizens and all minorities and nationalities within their territories, which also includes the establishment of certain forms of autonomy, while taking into consideration all international borders. The resolution also covers the need to organize assistance for all the regions of the European Community which will be affected directly by the sanctions against Yugoslavia. This applies especially to Greece and north-astern Italy.
