Graz agreement


Graz agreement

The Graz agreement was a military pact signed between Serb and Croat leaders in Bosnia and Herzegovina Radovan Karadžić and Mate Boban on April 27, 1992 in the town of Graz, Austria ment to strengthen earlier Karađorđevo meeting between Croatian President Franjo Tuđman and Serbian President Slobodan Milošević from March 1991. The treaty was meant to limit conflict between Serb and Croat forces by allowing both parties to concentrate on taking Bosnian Muslim (Bosniak) territory from the Bosnian forcescite web |date=Monday, 2 April 2007|url = http://www.ictytranscripts.org/TrialTranscripts/HTML/transe74/07-04-02-ED.html|title = IT-04-74-T, the Prosecutor versus Prlic et al|format = HTML |publisher = pub| accessdate = 2007-09-25 | last= |quote=Q.

Q. And can you tell the Judges in scanning through this agreement is there anyplace on the face of this document where any discussion is made about a Muslim territory or what part that Muslims would be left with?
A. No. There's no mention of the Muslim community.
