A CLEAR and unequivocal message on Kosovo must be sent by today's meeting of the Six Nations Contact Group on former Yugoslavia.

That is that further terror against the 90 per cent majority Albanian population by Belgrade's police and army will not be tolerated.

Surely we have learnt the cost of appeasing Slobodan Milosevic, Europe's last dictator.

Had we stood up to him in 1992 four years of war in Bosnia could have been avoided. If he is allowed to continue this slaughter while denying Kosovo the autonomy he removed in 1989 the consequences for the region and Europe as a whole will be catastrophic.
