Just 48 hours after he warned that Sarajevo would become a "new Beirut in Europe" under the Dayton peace accord, Bosnian Serb President Radovan Karadzic expressed support in a CNN interview today. "We completely back the Dayton agreement," the Serb leader told CNN. "There will be no casualties. There will be no incidents." He claimed that the Serb Army was "completely under control" and that "we accept peace." But Karadzic again warned that Sarajevo, which the peace plan unites under Bosnian Muslim control, will become unstable if the terms of the agreement are not changed. He said that the people who live in the Serb-dominated sections of the city are "terrified" about giving control of the city to their former enemies and warned that "Muslim police should not enter the Serbian suburbs." One major sign of trouble still remains: TIME's Alexandra Niksic reports from Belgrade that the Bosnian Serb military leader, General Ratko Mladic, who has not been seen since the Dayton accord was initialed, allegedly has sent a cable to troops in Serb-held areas of Sarajevo vowing that his army will never leave the territory.
