      The president of Montenegro, Momir Bulatovic, told a media
      conference on Tuesday that he had laid out a program for
  20  Montenegro, and that if it was not adopted he would resign. The
      program includes tying the fate of Montenegro more closely to that
      of Serbia and also includes the resignation of all key supporters
      of Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic, who has resigned as Party vice-
      president following a 16 hour meeting of the Socialist Democratic
  25  Party of Montenegro on Monday.

      Mr. Bulatovic denied that he had asked for Mr. Djukanovic's
      resignation as Prime Minister, but that he was insisting on
      responsible government and party unity. He stressed that there was
      no question of breaking up the Yugoslav federation and that he
  30  would support the candidacy of Slobodan Milosevic for Federal


      Opposition coalition Zajedno on Tuesday presented their strategies
      for economic reform. The main goal of the strategies is to bring
  35  Yugoslavia into the European Union by 2005.

      Zajedno say they would need two terms of office to effect changes
      in the economic, political and legal systems to upgrade them to EU

      Zajedno emphasised that the full integration of Yugoslavia into
  40  the EU implied transforming the current economy into a free market
      based on private ownership, democratic institutions and respect
      for human and minority rights, cooperation with neighbouring
      countries, the rule of law and full implementation of
      international agreements.

  45  At a news conference, Serbian Renewal Movement leader Vuk
      Draskovic said that Zajedno was committed to full implementation
      of the Dayton accords, which would not be feasible without
      democracy. Mr Draskovic added that Zajedno's ideal was a
      democratic Serbia, free from religious and ethnic discrimination,
  50  with European standards and a high level of local self-government.
      He stressed that Serbia was a long way from this, as Serbia
      President Slobodan Milosevic was taking centralisation of economic
      and police power further.

      Civic Alliance leader Vesna Pesic added that the issue of Kosovo
  55  must be solved in order to abolish discrimination. She added that
      the solution must be permanent and that Kosovo must remain within

      Democratic Party leader Zoran Djindjic warned that if the reforms
      proposed by Zajedno were not implemented, Yugoslavia would find
  60  itself in a cul de sac and face a situation similar to that of
