HRH CROWN PRINCE ALEXANDER's
In connection with the European Union's decision to ban JAT flights
between Union member countries and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia,
HRH Crown Prince Alexander made the following statement today:
In this situation, people believe they have to support this regime which controls the entire society and all the institutions. And while people suffer, the regime thrives on isolation and an unhealthy state of affairs. In addition, the fact that the regime does not shrink from starting fresh conflicts in order to stay in power, causes great concern. It is for these reasons that the international community should do everything in its power to help the democratic opposition to change the current regime and to implement radical reforms necessary for ensuring our country's better future.
All citizens, who work in favour of genuine democratic reforms, are
running into many obstacles, but must not give up since our common aim
is to have a government in Belgrade which will put the interests of the
people first and bring the country back into the community of nations.
As regards me personally, I give my full support to people who favour that
course of action and I shall act together with people from all strata of
society who fight for democracy, human rights and radical reforms.
London, 18 September 1998
