As UN negotiators try to reach an agreement on the reopening of Sarajevo airport, the heavy bombardment of the city began from Serbian artillery positions for the seventh day. The Vice-President of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ejuc Ganic, reiterates the government`s call for foreign military intervention and declares that, if it is not available, Sarajevo will soon be destroyed. (Ibid.: June 12, 1992) On 14 September, they were again suspended, this time to allow the implementation of an agreement with the Bosnian Serbs to withdraw heavy weapons from the exclusion zone. Finally, on 20 September 1995, French General Bernard Janvier (COMMANDER of UNPRONU) and US Admiral Leighton W. Smith Jr. (CINCSOUTH) agreed that there was no need to resume strikes because the Bosnian Serbs met UN conditions. Operation Deliberate Force has ended. [69] Muslim and Serbian leaders are negotiating an agreement under which joint patrols of federal forces and the republican police must negotiate, with armed irregularities, the dismantling of barricades in Sarajevo. According to the Ministry of the Interior of Bosnia and Herzegovina, several people were injured. (Le Monde 5 March 1992) According to some reports, an agreement has been reached between the Yugoslav Minister of Defence and the Macedonian President, providing for the total withdrawal of the YPA until 15 April 1992. According to the agreement, the weapons of the Republic`s territorial defence force, which are stored in ypa armour, will be transferred to Macedonia.

(AFP 21 February 1992a) Through this agreement, Pakistan has committed to accept the return of its citizens who are currently in an irregular situation in Bosnia and vice versa. On 5 August, the VRS seized several weapons from the Illida arms collection centre, in flagrant violation of the exclusion zone agreement. During the seizure, the Serbs wounded a UNPROPA peacekeeping officer. In response to the attack, the United Nations again requested NATO air support. Two U.S. A-10 aircraft repeatedly attacked Serbian targets, leading the Serbs to return the weapons seized at the assembly centre. [61] On 22 September, UNPROFOR again requested NATO air support in the Sarajevo region after Serbian forces attacked a French armoured carrier. Subsequently, two SEPECAT Jaguar aircraft shot down and destroyed a Serbian tank. [62] During the last 10-day meeting, Vance negotiated a new ceasefire agreement as a provisional agreement, supported by the sending of UN peacekeeping forces to monitor it. [22] The final obstacle to the agreement was removed when, on 25 December, it agreed to lift the blockade of the remaining JNA Barracks in the HV area.

This met Kadijevic`s conditions for the implementation of the ceasefire, and on 31 December he stated that he had no objection to the plan. [23] The leaders of the Republic`s three main ethnic communities sign an agreement in Sarajevo on the future structure of an independent Bosnia and Herzegovina that will provide for autonomous ethnic cantons based on the current demographic structures of the Republic`s districts. (Reuters, 18 March 1992; The New York Times 19 March 1992) After four hours of negotiations,[20] the agreement was signed on 2 January 1992 by Croatian Defence Minister Gojko Euak and Deputy Commander of the 5th Military District, Colonel Andrija Raeta in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was the 15th ceasefire agreement signed since the start of the Croatian war of independence on 31 March 1991. The ceasefire was generally held[22] after it came into force on 3 January at 18:00. [27] The main exit was in the Dubrovnik area,[28] where the JNA occupied positions around the city of Dubrovnik and the neighbouring district of Konavle until July 1992. [29] This area has not been included in the united Nations peacekeeping deployment schedule. [30] On 4 January, the Yugoslav navy withdrew from the naval base at Lora, near Split.

[31] On 5 January, Major General Imra Agotié, commander of the ZNG, found 84 ceasefire violations by the Serbian side. [32] On 7 January, the Yugoslav Air Force shot down a helicopter from the European Community observation mission.
