The World

June 18, 1989

The Parliament of Slovenia, the most-developed of Yugoslavia's six republics, has adopted a constitutional amendment granting it the right to secede, news reports in Belgrade said. The amendment, passed Friday, states that the Slovenian people have "the lasting and inalienable right to self-determination, including the right to secession and association," the official Tanjug news agency said. It is considered unlikely that federal authorities in Belgrade would allow the northern republic to break away from the union.
