Europe and the Mediterranean

The resolution of the complex situation in the territories of the former Yugoslavia-Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) (FRY) and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM)—continued to be the major focus of United Nations attention in the region of Europe and the Mediterranean. However, the situation in Albania and Georgia, including the region of Abkhazia, and the conflicts between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the Nagorny Karabakh region and in the Mediterranean island of Cyprus were of no less concern as United Nations efforts to find solutions to those continuing conflicts intensified.
