Text of Serb lawmakers' Kosovo peace plan
8.23 a.m. ET (1223 GMT) June 3, 1999

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (AP) - A copy of the Kosovo peace
plan approved by the Serb parliament today, obtained by The
Associated Press from parliamentary sources.

The text was in Serbian and translated by AP:

"In order to move forward toward solving the Kosovo crisis, an
agreement should be reached on the following principles:

"1: Imminent and verifiable end to violence and repression of

"2. Verifiable withdrawal from Kosovo of military, police and
paramilitary forces according to a quick timetable.

"3. Deployment in Kosovo, under U.N. auspicies, of efficient
international civilian and security presences which would act as can
be decided according to Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter and be
capable of guaranteeing fulfillment of joint goals.

"4. International security presence, with an essential NATO
participation, must be deployed under a unified control and
command and authorized to secure safe environment for all the
residents in Kosovo and enable the safe return of the displaced
persons and refugees to their homes.

"5. Establishment of an interim administration for Kosovo ... which
the U.N. Security Council will decide and under which the people
of Kosovo will enjoy substantial autonomy within the Federal
Republic of Yugoslavia . The interim administration (will) secure
transitional authority during the time (for the) interim democratic
and self-governing institutions, (establish) conditions for peaceful
and normal life of all citizens of Kosovo.

"6. After the withdrawal, an agreed number of Serb personnel will
be allowed to return to perform the following duties: liaison with the
international civilian mission and international security presence,
marking mine fields, maintaining a presence at places of Serb
heritage, maintaining a presence at key border crossings.

"7. Safe and free return of all refugees and the displaced under the
supervision of UNHCR and undisturbed access for humanitarian
organizations to Kosovo.

"8. Political process directed at reaching interim political agreement
which would secure essential autonomy for Kosovo, with full taking
into consideration of the Rambouillet agreement, the principles of
sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Federal Republic of
Yugoslavia and other states in the region as well as demilitarization
of the Kosovo Liberation Army. The talks between the sides about
the solution should not delay or disrupt establishment of the
democratic self-governning institutions.

"9. General approach to the economic development of the crisis
region. That would include carrying out a pact of stability for
southeastern Europe, wide international participation in order to
advance democracy and economic prosperity, and stability and
regional cooperation.

"10. The end of military activities will depend on acceptance of the
listed principles and simultaneous agreement with other previously
identified elements which are identified in the footnote below. Then
a military-technical agreement will be agreed which will among
other things specify additional modalities, including the role and
function of the Yugoslav, i.e. Serb, personnel in Kosovo.

"11. The process of withdrawal includes a phased, detailed
timetable and the marking of a buffer zone in Serbia behind which
the troops will withdraw.

"12. The returning personnel: The equipment of the returning
personnel, the range of their functional responsibilities, the timetable
for their return, determination of the geographic zones of their
activity, the rules guiding their relations with the international
security presence and the international civilian mission.

"Footnote. Other required elements: Fast and precise timetable for
the withdrawal which means for instance: seven days to end the
withdrawal; pulling out of weapons of air defense from the zone of
the mutual security of 25 kilometers within 48 hours; return of the
personnel to fullfill the four duties will be carried out under the
supervision of the international security presence and will be limited
to a small agreed number - hundreds, not thousands.

"Suspension of military actions will happen after the beginning of
the withdrawal which can be verified. Discussion about the
military-technical agreement and its reaching will not prolong the
agreed period for the withdrawal.''
