Mr. Speaker, Martin H. Creegen of Kranj, Slovenia, sent the following letter to the European newspaper in January 1994:
The international community has created an impossible situation for itself in relation to Bosnia, especially when the presence of United Nations troops in the country is cited as the reason for not enforcing UN resolutions there. The need for a new approach could not be clearer-I suggest that the following provides the only basis for bringing peace to Bosnia.
Bosnia must be declared a UN protectorate for a specified period and administered by the UN.
All parties must immediately cease all military activity.
A large program for handing over arms and those accused of war crimes must be agreed and enforced.
A large scale program of civil reconstruction should be instituted immediately with the main emphasis being on cross cultural co-operation.
As soon as conditions allow, an all-Bosnia assembly must be elected under international supervision and on the basis of electoral units, not ethnic affiliation.
Pressure must be maintained on neighbouring countries, in particular Croatia and Serbia, to resolve inter-ethnic relations.
