On 9 June, NATO General Sir Michael Jackson and representatives of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the Republic of Serbia signed the Military Technical Agreement that put an end to the 78-days bombing campaign of the country. The day after, Security Council Resolution 1244 gave UN backing to the agreement. Media around the world have presented these documents as cornerstones of a "peace" process.
The December 1998 Appeal distributed the revised "Statement of Principles" agreed at Carmaux, 1997, and asked for financial support for WRIs continuing work, explaining the nature of the strategic plan for the next 3 years. It raised £3591.39 after costs, primarily from British donors. Donations are still coming in for the May 1999 appeal. It distributed the WRI statement on the Kosov@ crisis and NATO bombing, and asked for support for WRIs anti-war networking on this issue. At the time of writing, £3074.80 has been raised after costs.
