US CIA Forecasts An End To Yugoslav Sanctions

A leaked US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) report has predicted that economic sanctions against Yugoslavia would have to begin being dismantled within six months. The report, allegedly by the CIA's chief analyst for Yugoslavia, D. Kanin, said that the result of the present war in the former Yugoslavia would be a greater Serbia, greater Croatia and a greater Albania. The report was leaked to The New York Times in December, just as France was pushing the US Administration to become militarily involved, on the ground, in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The White House and State Department have yet to concur with the CIA.
