- Story Text: European Union (EU) leaders arrived for the second and final day of their summit in Essen, Germany on Saturday (December 10) and promptly approved a statement condemning the Bosnian Serbs for violating the security zone around Bihac and said U.N.
peace-keepers must continue their crucial tasks.
A German diplomat said the statement was cleared at the start of the morning session.
"UNPROFOR (United Nations Protection Force) should continue its crucial mission of providing humanitarian assistance and saving human life," the official text of the declaration said.
"If it were obliged to withdraw because of the impossibility of fulfilling its mandate, the implications for Bosnia and its civilian population would be severe," it added.
The leaders insisted on an immediate ceasefire in and around the safe area of Bihac and the withdrawal of Bosnian Serb and Krajina Serb forces.
It reiterated support for the peace plan of the five-nation contact group, but said the shareout of land could be adjusted.
