Živadin Jovanović about the Rambouillet talks

Živadin Jovanović was the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia between 1998 and 2000, and as an insider to the events that started NATO’s first war and Norway’s first war since 1788, Jovanović is very critical of the talks. He claims that there were no negotiations, and we, i.e. NATO just needed an excuse to go to war against Yugoslavia.

Jovanović does not have very high thoughts about his Norwegian counterpart, Knut Vollebæk who was the foreign minister when Norway went to war in 1999, for the first time since 1788 when Denmark-Norway went to war against Sweden. Jovanović says Vollebæk served the purposes of NATO, not the European civilization. The interview is maybe a bit long, but it is worth your time. The discussion about the Norwegian politicians comes after 40:20.
