The Crisis in Former Yugoslavia and the U. S. Role: Hearing Before the Committee on Foreign Affairs House of Representatives One Hundred Third Congress First Session September 29, 1993 (Classic Reprint) by United States Congress House Affairs (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from The Crisis in Former Yugoslavia and the U. S. Role: Hearing Before the Committee on Foreign Affairs House of Representatives One Hundred Third Congress First Session September 29, 1993 The committee met, pursuant to call, at 10 a.m., in room 2172, Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. Lee H. Hamilton (chairman) presiding. Chairman Hamilton. The Committee on Foreign Affairs will come to order. The Committee on Foreign Affairs meets today in open session to discuss the crisis in the former Yugoslavia and U.S. policy. We meet, of course, at an important moment in the Bosnian peace process, at a time when the United States may be confronted with key decisions regarding its role in implementing a possible peace agreement. The President of the United States has stated his willingness for U.S. participation in such a mission if certain conditions are satisfied, and has stated that he will seek support in the Congress for such participation. Of course, agreement has been reached as of this moment. Our witnesses today are Misha Glenny, author and former BBC correspondent in Yugoslavia and Central Europe; Roy Gutman, an author and Newsday correspondent; the Horable Jeane Kirkpatrick, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute - I understand she will be here shortly; and Professor John Lampe, director of East European Studies at the Woodrow Wilson Center. We welcome each of you here today. Your statements, of course, will be entered into the record in full, and I would like, before turning to Mr. Gilman for a statement, to ask each of you to try to take more than 5 minutes for your opening remarks. We will have plenty of time for questions. And I might say to Members here that I will have to be fairly strict, I think, in enforcing the 5-minute rule, and ask them, if they would, to watch carefully the lights. We have a lot of ground to cover and we want to maximize time for discussion. The chair recognizes Mr. Gilman. Mr. Gilman. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I want to commend you for your foresight in scheduling today's hearing, which falls against the dramatic backdrop of an imminent decision on whether our Nation should commit 25,000 or more troops into the Bosnia area. I would like to welcome our distinguished panel of experts on the Balkan Region and what was once Yugoslavia.
