On November 27

On this day in ...
... 1991 (20 years ago today), U.N. Security Council Resolution 721 was adopted. It acknowledged that participants on all sides of the disputes in Yugoslavia had requested U.N. peacekeepers. The resolution of the Council (above left) indicated that a peacekeeping mission could be initiated, but only if all parties complied with a 4-day-old unconditional ceasefire agreement.
