Yugoslavia condemns indictment
Slobodan Milosevic with his wife: Says people are still behind him
Text of report by Serbian radio on 27 May:
The statement stresses:
This is an attempt to declare that the victims are the culprits and to cover the Nato leaders' responsibility for the genocide against the people of our country.
Louise Arbour is just a puppet in the hands of the masters of war, a part of the aggressor's machine, which is manipulating world public opinion through an illusion of justice and protecting those responsible for the genocide against the people of Yugoslavia.
This job, however, is becoming increasingly difficult because the world is becoming increasingly aware of these covert games, the inversion of premises and moves such as today's statement by Mrs Arbour.
This shameful move, although aimed at breathing life into Nato's exhausted propaganda machine and camouflaging rifts in the Nato alliance, will achieve one certain result - even stronger unity of the people and leadership of our country in their just struggle for freedom.
Instead of those defending their people and state, the court should try those who ordered and carried out the unprecedented crimes and massacres against the citizens of Yugoslavia, people like Javier Solana, Wesley Clark and their masters in Washington and London - William Jefferson Clinton and Tony Blair.
Cowards and officers without honour, politicians without morals and even a semblance of humanity are killing women and children, sick people in hospitals and babies in maternity wards on a daily basis.
They are disrupting traffic on major European communications routes and threatening the environment we are supposed to hand down to future generations.
The president of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the state leadership are democratically elected by the citizens of our country, who appreciate their contribution to the protection of our vital state and national interests.
This senseless farce cannot diminish the importance and prospects of the political and diplomatic initiative of the president of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and our state leadership, aimed at urgently halting the aggression and resuming the political process and constructively resolving all open issues in Kosovo-Metohija, and safeguarding the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country and the freedom and dignity of our people.
