Finally, speaking slowly, Izetbegovic said, “It is not a just peace.”
How could we convince Izetbegovic that he was now at the decisive moment?
Izetbegovic, Silajdzic, and Sacirbey sat in the room waiting for us.
When the meeting was finished, Izetbegovic and Silajdzic asked to keep the charts.
Izetbegovic did not acknowledge the importance of the offer, but focused solely on its defects.
I then recommended that we tell Izetbegovic that he had one hour to decide, after which we would close down the conference.
We told Milosevic that while his proposal was “a big step in the right direction,” it was likely Izetbegovic would reject it.
I suggest that Tudjman and I sign the agreement, and we leave it open for Izetbegovic to sign later.
