Mission to free soldiers fails
The delegation was shown the results of the Aleksinac bombing
Talks in Belgrade have failed to secure the release of three US soldiers being held by Yugoslavia.
He said that attacks occurred in the Belgrade area and elsewhere within hours of his arrival on Thursday in the Yugoslav capital.
"It was expected ... that during my stay at least some respect should have been shown and some understanding until I had finished my consultations," he said.
Washington has been swift in saying the failure of Mr Kyprianou's mission is not a surprise.
Bomb damage inspections
The Yugoslavian government first invited him to inspect damage caused by a Nato air raid in a residential area of the town of Aleksinac.
"I am not a military expert but I have seen things that shocked me," he said.
A BBC correspondent in Belgrade said the authorities were keen to exploit the propaganda value of Nato's error which, according to the most recent figures from the official state news agency, caused the deaths of 18 civilians.
before the meeting, Mr Kyprianou's aides said they were optimistic about securing the freedom of the three Americans.
But one of Yugoslavia's Deputy Prime Ministers, the hardliner Vojislav Seselj, said on Thursday there was no question of the prisoners being allowed to return home.
The soldiers - Andrew Ramirez, 24, Christopher Stone, 25, of Michigan and Steven Gonzales, 24, of Texas, were captured by Serbian security forces on the border between Yugoslavia and Macedonia on 31 March.
Nato said the soldiers were part of a non-combat peacekeeping force and that they were snatched while on a routine patrol near the Yugoslav border in Macedonia, while Belgrade insisted they were on Yugoslav territory.
