The former Yugoslav republics have distributed half of the property of Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRJ) and the remaining part will be discussed late February on the next meeting of representatives of the former republics in Sarajevo, head of the expert group for the implementation of the Agreement on Succession Issues Goran Knezevic said Wednesday.
He said that there are 123 diplomatic-consular embassies to be distributed which amount to USD 225 million.
“Our internal negotiation team is to meet next week so as to agree on the further operation. Although, some people say that 90 percent of property succession is completed, that is not true since none of the seven annexes of the Agreement on Succession Issues is fully drafted, implying that there are many moot points in the talks,” Knezevic said.
The heritage dispute began after the bloody breakup of the former Yugoslavia in a series of wars that started in 1991, and the former Yugoslav republics reached an agreement on it in 2001.
