The Co-Chair of the International Conference for Yugoslavia, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General, and the UNPROFOR Commander convened for a meeting at the United States Embassy in Belgrade on the morning of July 15th. Mr. Bildt briefed the gathering on the results of his meeting with Slobodan Milosevic and Ratko Mladic the previous day. Aware of reports that grave human rights abuses might have been committed against the men and boys of Srebrenica, but unaware that mass and systematic executions had commenced, the gathering of senior international officials then joined Milosevic and Mladic for a largely ceremonial meeting over lunch. This was followed by a meeting between the Force Commander and Mladic to finalize the details.
