Serb Leader Seeks Pressure On Bosnia To Stop Fighting

Mon., March 27, 1995

A day after making his “last call” to make peace, the rebel Serb leader appealed Sunday to President Clinton and other world leaders to put an end to the Bosnian government’s battlefield advances.

In a letter to President Clinton, Russian President Boris Yeltsin and the leaders of France, Britain and the United Nations on Sunday, Radovan Karadzic sought international pressure on the Bosnian government to stop the fighting.

Attempting to build on their military breakthrough last week, government troops in the northeastern city of Tuzla were preparing Sunday for what officers said they hope will be the final assault on a Serb communications tower on a nearby mountaintop.
