28. Declaration by the President on the situation in Yugoslavia


On behalf of Parliament, the President made the following declaration:
The Serbian people have taken their destiny in hand. The European Parliament wishes to express to them
its total solidarity at this historic moment when tyranny is beginning to crumble and democracy triumph.

The millions of Serbs now taking to the streets deserve our admiration for their political courage. Let us
hope that all the forces of law and order will join with them.
The European Union and the European Parliament in particular will do their utmost to help restore the
democratic process.

To this effect, we urge that the sanctions should be lifted and that the Union prepare measures to demon-
strate its solidarity with a free Yugoslavia.
