Federal Republic of Yugoslavia: Montenegro tense

Briefing notes

Federal Republic of Yugoslavia: Montenegro tense

21 May 1999

UNHCR continues its efforts to transfer Kosovar displaced people from the tense border region of Rozaje, on the border with Kosovo, to the coastal municipality of Ulcinj. Yesterday around 100 people were moved. Transfers will continue tomorrow.

UNHCR staff report a tense situation in Montenegro, particularly related to border crossings and establishment of military checkpoints restricting access to the border. There is particular concern that this will limit access of humanitarian personnel and of supplies.
