MINISTER FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS
12 April 1999
Missing Australian Aid Workers
I am naturally concerned at last night's report on Yugoslav TV.
On seeing the report, the Australian Ambassador immediately called the Yugoslav Foreign Ministry in Belgrade and again demanded immediate consular access to the two CARE employees.
DFAT has also made the same demand of the Yugoslav Ambassador in Canberra.
I am particularly disturbed at this development and again call on Yugoslav authorities to allow our Embassy immediate access to the two Australians. I also reaffirm my request for their release.
