CNN 20: CNN Looks Back on the Bosnian Peace Treaty, December 14, 1995

Aired December 14, 2000 - 3:32 p.m. ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

NATALIE ALLEN, CNN ANCHOR (on camera): The ceremony is over; three bitter enemies are now reluctant partners, publicly committed to peace. It is a day the people of Bosnia-Herzegovina have longed for: a moment world leaders, including President Bill Clinton, have worked for.

STEVE HURST, STATE DEPARTMENT CORRESPONDENT (on camera): The goals of treaty were, essentially, to ensure that the Bosnian Moslems who had been under attack by the Serbs and, to a lesser do agree earlier on by the Croatians, that these people would be able to live in peace, that they would have a homeland that they could return to.

(voice-over): The negotiations were carried out under the aegis of Secretary of State Warren Christopher, but the hard work was being done by Richard Holbrooke, who was a special envoy from Washington, trying to work out a settlement.

They negotiated through the night and they finally reached this peace agreement which is, essentially, held with the help of 60,000 NATO troops. However, it's not working the way I think it was envisioned in that it was thought that there would be a reintegration of the Moslems and the Serbs and the other ethnic factions in the Balkans. And that really isn't happening the way it was hoped.
