Europe and the Mediterranean

During 1994, United Nations efforts in Europe continued to focus on the armed conflicts in the former Yugoslavia and civil strife in some of the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States. Prospects for peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia eluded the international community, as hostilities in those countries intensified over the irreconcilable issues of State sovereignty, ethnic autonomy and territorial claims. In the absence of an overall settlement, United Nations activities and those of the International Conference on the Former Yugoslavia concentrated on seeking to achieve a cease-fire, facilitate negotiations, deliver humanitarian assistance to the affected population and maintain effective peace-keeping operations, as well as to contain the widespread violations of international humanitarian law.
