The four-month cessation of hostilities agreement took effect in January 1995. There was tension between expanding UNPROFOR and the UNPROFOR withdrawal option known as OPLAN 40104. The Deputies and Principals spent early 1995 focused on Croatia and the intentions of Croatian President Franjo Tudjman. The costs of UNPROFOR and OPLAN 40104 seized some Situation Room discussions. Serbian President Slobodan Milošević finally refused to mutually recognize Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina as steps toward a peace deal. The Principals decided in March 1995 to maintain diplomatic engagement and provision of humanitarian relief, keep UNPROFOR deployed in Bosnia and Croatia, and take measures to contain the conflict. Washington continued to support the Bosnian government’s goal of a political settlement consistent with the Contact Group proposal but seek to lower public expectations of immediate success and avoid any illusion that the United States or NATO would intervene militarily on behalf of the Bosniaks.
