Stability in Kosovo Demands Development of the Bal
In attending the Southeastern Europe Stability Pact Summit in Sarajevo this weekend, President Clinton highlights the importance for the United States as well as Europe of the future of this troubled region.
What is at stake is more than the reconstruction of Kosovo. It is the effort to build relations of cooperation and exchange to replace a centuries-old legacy of conflict; it is the economic growth and political development of an entire region whose potential has been blocked by the last remaining vestiges in Europe of National Communism.
As important as all this is, rebuilding Kosovo alone will not suffice.
