President Milosevic's message reads as follows: Citizens of Yugoslavia, we have certainly made you sincerely happy by achieving peace at the negotiations in Dayton. They lasted a long time, but I think that the outcome is suited to such negotiations. I wish the citizens of the Serb Republic a successful Serb Republic and I wish them peace and cooperation with the Muslim-Croat Federation. The war in Bosnia and Herzegovina has been ended today for good. Not only because this agreement covers all items of the peace plan, but also because an accurate border has been set at last between the Serb Republic and the Muslim-Croat Federation, so that any military action aimed at any territorial changes would be pointless and it would be treated undoubtedly and exclusively as an act of terrorism. Therefore, the war's over. We should all now turn to peace, construction, economic recovery. We have spent much time in the last few days on the question of maps precisely. I think that these maps are much, almost incomparably better than the Contact Group maps. Let me begin from the west: of the territories lost, the territories of the municipalities of Mrkonjic Grad and Shipovo have been returned to the Serb Republic, and then going to the central part in relation to the Contact Group plan, Ozren and Doboj, Modricca, Derventa, Brod, Shamac and Brcko, and in relation to the eastern part, Visegrad, Srebrenica and Zzepa, so that in my opinion, these maps make up a fair solution. All parties undoubtedly had to make also serious concessions. However, it is quite certain that all of the concessions made cannot be compared with the result achieved. The result is peace not only in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also in the whole region. The whole region is now in a position to concentrate on its own development. In conclusion I want to tell you that a United Nations Security Council resolution suspending all economic sanctions against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia has been put into the adoption procedure precisely now. This resolution is a comprehensive one. Namely, the sanctions will be suspended immediately, and they will be lifted formally after a specified period of time. However, with regard to the character of the regime, there is no difference between suspension and lifting. What is involved is only an appropriate procedure associated with the relaxation of tensions and easing of the armed clashes in Bosnia. I am expecting of our whole country, which is now free of the restraints which have been disrupting very much our economic and social development as a whole, to take a course to economic recovery and successful development. Our next objective is a successful economic and cultural development, integration into Europe and the world, equality of the nations and people in the region, equality and cooperation in the best interests of all. I wish to convey on behalf of the delegation of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in Dayton, Ohio, best regards to all citizens of Yugoslavia - said President Milosevic in his message addressed to all citizens of Yugoslavia from Ohio. -------------------------
