EMBARGO MAY LIFT THE UNITED STATES

SHARE EMBARGO MAY LIFT THE UNITED STATES

The United States on Sunday reaffirmed its intention to begin moving after Oct. 15 to push for lifting the U.N. arms embargo on Bosnian Muslims after the Muslims told President Clinton this is what they wanted.

But U.S. officials, acknowledging the risks of such an action, said privately there may be some flexibility in the timing of a U.N. vote requested by the United States on the embargo.The official said the U.S. approach to the nearly 3-year-old civil war was "motivated by what Bosnians (Muslims) want . . . The Bosnians do want the arms embargo lifted."
