JULY 9th, 1995
In a conversation with General Zdravko Tolimir, the UNPROFOR Commander's Chief of Staff conveyed these decisions, and added that he would shortly convey the same warning in writing. Tolimir confirmed that he understood the message, yet still refused to acknowledge that the Serbs had attacked UNPROFOR or the enclave. The UNPROFOR Commander's Chief of Staff stated that the only party using heavy weapons was the VRS, and that it had indeed directly attacked the "safe area" and UN personnel, and had threatened the civilian population of Srebrenica. He concluded the conversation by stating that if the Bosnian Serbs did not withdraw to the former confrontation line within two hours, UNPROFOR would be forced to respond with all available means.
