Lyon, France, 29 June 1996

• Opening statement
• Elections and Institutions
• International War Crimes Tribunal
• Consolidation Plan
• Reconstruction
• Refugees and the rule of law
• Regional and Security Issues
• Final Statement

We confirm our support for the Peace Agreement and the establishment of a democratic and pluralistic State of Bosnia and Herzegovina, composed of two Entities.

The prime responsibility for implementing the Peace Agreement lies with the different communities and their leaders. Without compliance and active participation in rebuilding a civil society, they cannot expect that the international community and major donor countries shoulder the main burden of the implementation and reconstruction effort.

Endorsing the conclusions adopted at the Peace Implementation Conference in Florence, we have taken the following decisions:
