1. THE COMMUNIST AUTHORITIES OF THE REPUBLIC OF

EXPANSIONISTIC POLICY AGAINST THE SOVEREIGN AND

FOR THESE REASONS, THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA IS
SUSPENDING ALL RELATIONS WITH THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA
AS LONG AS OFFICIAL SERBIA SUPPORTS SUCH A POLICY,
AND THE GOVERNMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA WILL
MAKE THE NECESSARY DECISIONS.

2. AN UNDECLARED AND UNPROVOKED AGGRESSION HAS BEEN
CARRIED OUT AGAINST CROATIA FOR SOME TIME NOW.

IT IS A CAMOUFLAGED, UNDERHANDED AND DIRTY WAR
IMPOSED ON CROATIA WHICH HAS SO FAR TAKEN HUNDREDS
OF HUMAN LIVES, AND CAUSED HUGE MATERIAL
DESTRUCTION, EVEN DESTROYED ENTIRE SUBURBS.

THE YUGOSLAV PEOPLES' ARMY IS DIRECTLY AND
INDIRECTLY PARTICIPATING IN THE AGGRESSION AGAINST
CROATIA ORGANIZED BY THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA WITH THE
ASSISTANCE OF THE TERRORIST REBELLIOUS GROUPS.

GROUPS OF TERRORISTS WERE RECRUITED FROM WITHIN
SERBIAN RANKS IN CROATIA WHO ARE INDOCTRINATED WITH
THE GREATER SERBIAN AND CHETNIK IDEOLOGY.

PAGE 03 ZAGREB 01189 02 OF 05 061110Z

BASED ON THE UNTRUTHS AND HISTORICAL FABRICATIONS,
THE MILITARISM AND GREATER SERBIAN HEGEMONY, THE
PRESENT CONDUCT OF THE STATE BODIES OF THE REPUBLIC
OF SERBIA CANNOT REPRESENT A BASIS FOR THE
CONSTRUCTIVE, PEACEFUL RESOLUTION OF THE YUGOSLAV
CRISIS.
-
3. FROM THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE POSTWAR BOLSHEVIK
YUGOSLAVIA, THE YUGOSLAV PEOPLES' ARMY WAS A
CONTINUOUS IMPORTANT INSTRUMENT OF THE POLITICIAL
AUTHORITIES, AND TODAY IT IS A PART OF THE COMMUNIST
MILITARY COMMAND, RESISTING THE INEVITABLE
DEMOCRATIC REFORM OF SOCIETY, ESCAPING EVERY CONTROL
AND THREATENING THE DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED
AUTHORITIES IN THE REPUBLICS.

A PART OF THE ARMY IS DIRECTLY SIDING WITH THE
TERRORISTS.

4. THESE DAYS THE AGGRESSIVE ATTACKS ON CROAITAN
TERRITIORIES CAUSED THE DESTRUCTION OF ENTIRE
SUBURBS AND THE EXODUS OF THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES FROM
THEIR HOMES, IN KEEPING WITH THE TERRORISTS'
GENOCIDAL PLANS FOR THE CREATION OF ETHNICALLY PURE
SERBIAN TERRITIORIES ON THE TERRITORY OF THE
REPUBLIC OF CROATIA.

THE PARLIAMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA ON BEHALF
OF ALL THE CITIZENS WHO HAVE RECEIVED ASSISTANCE IS
PUBLICLY THANKING THOSE INDIVIDUALS, FAMILIES,

5. THE PARLIAMENT REQUESTS THAT THE GOVERNMENT OF
THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION FOR
THE NECESSARY MOBILIZATION OF ALL DEFENSE FORCES.

COMPANIES, HEALTH, SOCIAL AND OTHER SERVICES SHOULD
IMMEDIATELY ADAPT THEIR STRUCTURES, STAFF AND
ACTIVITIES FOR SPECIAL DEFENSE CONDITIONS AND FOR
THE REAL NEEDS OF THE POPULATION, SUBORDINATING
EVERYTHING TO THE DEFENSE OF DEMOCRACY AND THE
TERRITORIAL INTEGRITY OF THE REPUBLIC.

ALL STATE SERVICES AND THE ENTIRE NATION SHOULD
ADAPT THEIR ACTIVITIES TO THE CONDITIONS IN WHICH
THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA FINDS ITSELF.
-
6. IN THE SITUATION WHEN THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA IS
EXPOSED TO OPEN AGGRESSION ON ITS TERRITORY, THE
MOST IMPORTANT TASK OF ALL ITS CITIZENS INCLUDING
ALL STATE AND POLITICAL STRUCTURES AS WELL AS
REPRESENTATIVES IN THE PARLIAMENT IS THE DEFENSE OF
THE HOMELAND ACCORDING TO THEIR STATUS AND
RESPONSIBILITIES.

7. THE PARLIAMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA
CONSIDERS THAT THE MEDIA IN THE REPUBLIC SHOULD BE
MORE EFFICIENT IN CARRYING OUT THEIR DUTIES OF
INFORMING TRUTHFULLY AND OBJECTIVELY THE DOMESTIC
AND INTERNATIONAL PUBLICS ABOUT EVENTS IN CROATIA.

8. THE PARLIAMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA IS
EXPRESSING ITS GRATITUDE TO ALL CROATS OUTSIDE OF
THE HOMELAND FOR THEIR PAST AND FUTURE SUPPORT FOR
DEMOCRATIC CROATIA IN ITS EFFORTS FOR DEFENSE AND
DEVELOPMENT.

9. THE PARLIAMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA IS
GRATEFUL TO THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY FOR ITS HELP
SO FAR TO CROATIAN DEMOCRACY AND IS CALLING ALL
PARLIAMENTS OF DEMOCRATIC COUNTRIES ALL OVER THE
WORLD TO GRANT RECOGNITION TO THE REPUBLIC OF
CROATIA WHICH IS CONSTITUTIONALLY ESTABLISHED AS A
DEMOCRATIC AND SOCIAL STATE BASED ON LAW.

IN REGARD TO THIS, THE PARLIAMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF
CROATIA ENDORSES THE LETTER WHICH THE PRESIDENT OF
THE PARLIAMENT SENT TO THE PARLIAMENTS OF EUROPEAN
COUNTRIES AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS.

10. THE YUGOSLAV PEOPLES' ARMY HAS NOT WITHDRAWN TO
ITS BASES AND IS THUS FLAGRANTLY VIOLATING THE
AGREEMENT WITH THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY. FOR THESE
REASONS, THE REGULAR POLITICAL FORCES CANNOT
ESTABLISH THE LEGAL ORDER WHERE IT HAS BEEN

CROATIA.
FOR THE REASONS BROUGHT FORTH, THE CITIZENS OF THE
REPUBLIC OF CROATIA CONSIDER THE YUGOSLAV PEOPLES'
ARMY AS AN OCCUPYING FORCE.

CONSEQUENTLY, THE PARLIAMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF
CROATIA, AS THE REPRESENTATIVE BODY OF ITS CITIZENS,
DEMANDS THAT THE YUGOSLAV PEOPLES' ARMY WITHOUT
DELAY RETREAT TO ITS BASES AND THAT, IN ADEQUATE
TIME, IT RETREAT FROM THE TERRITORY OF THE REPUBLIC
OF CROATIA DURING THE PROCESS OF DISASSOCIATION.

THE PARLIAMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA EXPECTS
THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA AND
THE GOVERNMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA WILL TAKE
NECESSARY STEPS TO IMPLEMENT THIS PARLIAMENTARY
RESOLUTION.

11. THE PARLIAMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA IS
CALLING ALL INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS WHICH DEAL
WITH THE ISSUE OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE RIGHTS OF
NATIONAL MINORITIES TO SEND THEIR REPRESENTATVIES TO
CROATIA SO THAT THEY MAY SEE FOR THEMSELVES THE REAL

SITUATION OF CIVIL, HUMAN AND NATIONAL RIGHTS OF
SERBS AND ALL OTHER NATIONS THAT LIVE IN CROATIA.

12. THE MEMBER OF THE PRESIDENCY FROM MONTENEGRO,
BRANKO KOSTIC, THROUGH HIS ACTIVITIES SO FAR, AND
ESPECIALLY HAVING PUBLICLY SUPPORTED GREATER SERBIAN
HEGEMONY, AND ESSENTIALLY ENTICING DISOBEDIENCE AND
VIOLENCE TOWARDS THE LEGAL ORGANS OF THE REPUBLIC OF
CROATIA, HAS DISCREDITED HIMSELF FROM CARRYING OUT
ANY ACTIVITY WHATSOEVER IN THE ORGANS OF THE FEDERAL
GOVERNMENT OF THE SFRJ THAT IS RELATED TO THE
PRESENT CONDITIONS IN CROATIA.

13. THE PARLIAMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA
ACCEPTS THE DECISION OF THE PRESIDENCY OF THE SFRJ
OF AUGUST 3, 1991 ABOUT AN URGENT AND ABSOLUTE
CEASE-FIRE IN THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA AND CONSIDERS
NECESSARY EVERY INITIATIVE AND EVERY EFFORT,
ESPECIALLY FROM THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY, THAT AN
IMMEDIATE CEASE-FIRE BE IMPLEMENTED IN CROATIA.
CONSEQUENTLY, THE MISSION OF THE EUROPEAN OBSERVERS
IS INEVITABLE AND WELCOME AS WELL AS ALL OTHER FORM
OF DIRECT PARTICIPATION OF EUROPE IN THE RESOLUTION
OF THE CRISIS. AT THE SAME TIME, THE PARLIAMENT
FIRMLY DECIDED, BECAUSE OF THE ABOVE-MENTIONED
REASONS, TO PROTEST AGAINST THE APPOINTMENT OF
BRANKO KOSTIC IN THE SFRJ PRESIDENCY AS CHAIRMAN OF
THE COMMISSION TO MONITOR THE CEASE-FIRE.

14. THE PARLIAMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA IS

JULY THIS YEAR WAS THE COMMANDER OF THE III. ARMY

GENERAL ZIVOTA AVRAMOVIC, THROUGH HIS FLAGRANT

PARLIAMENTS OF DEMOCRATIC COUNTRIES, INCLUDING THE
EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT.

THE FACT IS THAT THIS SAME GENERAL, SINCE JULY 1991,
HAS BEEN THE COMMANDER OF THE V. ARMY DISTRICT UNDER
