Macedonia's Vote for Independence

The article "Macedonia Freedom Push Complicates Peace Efforts," Sept. 10, is entirely wrong. Macedonia's recent vote for independence will not complicate the European Community's effort to peacefully settle the breakup of the six-republic Balkan Federation of Yugoslavia; the fragmentation of Yugoslavia is caused by Belgrade's insistence on Serbian hegemony.The United States and Europe must speak out clearly and quickly to prevent an invasion by the federal Army and to allow Macedonia to develop into a democratic, free-market state. In such a state, the basic human rights of all of Macedonia's citizens will be recognized and protected. Like all nations, Macedonia has a right to be free, independent, and sovereign. Ivan A.
