It was at this time that the war between Croats and Bosniaks ended when, in March 1994, the two factions settled their differences in the Washington Agreement. The Vance Plan was drawn up to end the fighting in Croatia and continue negotiations without the effects of continued hostilities. It did not propose prior political solutions. The plan called for the dispatch of 10,000 men from the UN Protection Force (UNPROFOR) to the three major conflict zones designated as UN Protected Areas (UNPAS). [22] The plan listed some municipalities to be included in each UNPA, but the exact boundaries of each UNPA were not clearly defined, as several municipalities would only have to be partially included. The task of setting the exact limits of each UNPA has been delegated to the UN liaison officers sent in advance, in cooperation with the authorities in each field. [30] The creation of the URSP was necessary to accept the plan of Milošević and Tuđman. The Serb-dominated Yugoslav authorities initially requested the dispatch of a UN force along an area separating Serb and Croat territories, reflecting Serbia`s desire that the peacekeeping force secure the lines of confrontation. Croatia wanted the UN force to be deployed along its international borders. The United Nations served to formally satisfy both sides. [34] The Vance Plan consisted of two agreements. The first Convention, known as the Geneva Agreement, was signed on 23 November 1991 in Geneva, Switzerland, by the Yugoslav Minister of Defence, General Veljko Kadijević, Serbian President Slobodan Milošević and Croatian President Franjo Tuđman.

As the ceasefire agreed at the time did not last, further negotiations led to the implementation agreement of 2 January 1992. The implementation agreement signed in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, by JNA Lieutenant General General General Andrija Rašeta and Croatian Defence Minister Gojko Šušak resulted in a prolonged ceasefire, overseen by the United Nations Protection Force (UNPROFOR). The parties have not fully implemented the remaining key aspects of the Vance Plan. After four hours of negotiations,[20] the agreement was signed on 2 January 1992 by Croatian Defence Minister Gojko Šušak and the Deputy Commander of the JNA`s 5th Military District, Lieutenant General Andrija Rašeta, in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. This was the 15th ceasefire agreement signed since the beginning of the Croatian War of Independence on 31 March 1991. The ceasefire generally lasted[22] after it came into effect on January 3 at 6 p.m. [27] The main exception applied in the Dubrovnik area [28], where the JNA held posts around the city of Dubrovnik and in the neighbouring district of Konavle until July 1992. [29] This area has not been included in the deployment schedule of UN peacekeeping forces. [30] On January 4, the Yugoslav Navy withdrew from the Lora naval base near Split.

[31] On January 5, Major General Imra Agotić, commander of the ZNG, found 84 ceasefire violations committed by the Serbian side. [32] On January 7, the Yugoslav Air Force shot down a helicopter of the European Community Observation Mission. The next day, Kadijević resigned as Minister of Defense,[33] and was replaced by Colonel General Blagoje Adžić. [32] But if you accept a lawsuit, you are liable. You will be responsible for making an agreement. You will be responsible for the implementation. Anything that emerges from our interference will be disguised as a mere Vance-Owen improvement. But make no mistake.

It will have stamped “made in America” everywhere. But Muslims rejected the plan. They want a lot more. And Clinton promised at her Feb. 10 city meeting not to impose an agreement on Muslims. .
