Little progress on return Serbs to Croatia

Zagreb, May 4, 2000 -- (RFE/RL) Milan Djukic, who heads Croatia's Serbian People's Party, said in Zagreb on 2 May that there has been no substantial return of ethnic Serbs who fled during the two Croatian offensives in 1995.

He said that the government has not made good on its promise to enable a considerable number of Serbs to come home in the year 2000, RFE/RL's South Slavic Service reported.

The government, for its part, stresses that it needs aid from abroad to provide housing, infrastructure, and jobs for returnees.
