NO COMPROMISE IN KOSOVO: BLAIR WRITES IN THE TIMES (07/05/99)
Writing in 'The Times' newspaper in advance of the anniversary of VE Day, Tony Blair has described his regret that the ethnic hatred thought to have been banished from Europe after the Second World War should have resurfaced in Kosovo. Meeting with refugees during his visit to Macedonia earlier in the week, he said, he heard nothing but support for NATO's action. 'I make a personal commitment to Milosevic's victims,' he writes; 'we will follow this through and we will win... There can be no compromise.'

MILOSEVIC IS DAMNED BY TRAIL OF BLOOD: BLAIR WRITES IN 'THE EXPRESS' (07/05/99)
Reflecting on his visit earlier in the week to the refugee camps of Macedonia, Tony Blair has attacked the Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic and the 'trail of blood spread across Yugoslavia since he took power'. It is tragic, he writes, that the horrors of this conflict should be 'the result of one man's overwhelming greed for power and complete disregard for human rights'. But history will not forget the terrible crimes of the regime, he concludes. 'We know who the killers are. They will not escape justice. They will be called to account.'
