by the NATO Secretary General, Dr. Javier Solana

The unilateral ceasefire proposed by the the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the government of Serbia is clearly insufficient. Before a ceasefire can be considered President Milosevic must meet the demands established by the international community.

NATO's current military action against the FRY is in support of the political aims of the international community: a peaceful multi-ethnic democratic Kosovo in which all its people live in security.

These aims can be achieved by the return of all refugees and therefore the deployment of an international security presence, the withdrawal of Serb military, police and paramilitary forces, and putting into place a political framework for Kosovo on the basis of the Rambouillet Accords.
