The Clinton Administration and its allies are offering Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic both a carrot and a stick today in a diplomatic showdown over Bosnia-Herzegovina, senior U.S. and U.N. officials said Wednesday. The carrot is a quiet promise that the West will begin lifting economic sanctions on Serbia if Milosevic pushes the ethnic Serbs of Bosnia to sign a U.N. peace plan that would divide the republic into 10 ethnic provinces.

A political crisis in Yugoslavia's main republic is threatening democratic reforms, Serbia's prime minister was quoted as saying Saturday. The crisis was touched off when Yugoslav President Vojislav Kostunica's party pulled out of the government in Serbia, the country's dominant republic. The move could lead to early elections less than a year after a pro-democracy movement ousted the country's former leader, Slobodan Milosevic.

Frenzied efforts during the last several days to remove Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic from power appear to have backfired, leaving a government in place that is likely to be more hostile than ever toward the U.S.-brokered peace accord that ended Bosnia's savage war, analysts and diplomats said Monday.

The United States will consider easing economic sanctions against Serbia if President Slobodan Milosevic keeps his vow to cut off all assistance to the Bosnian Serbs, Secretary of State Warren Christopher said Tuesday. "We're going to be watching the situation very carefully because of the disappointment we had the last time that a similar intention was expressed," he told reporters on his return flight from a Middle East trip.

Shunned by the world, abandoned by former allies and unable to control the violence consuming his country, Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic appears in deep political trouble. United Nations sanctions imposed a week ago have had little visible effect on an economy already ravaged by war, but they have struck a collapsing blow to the Serbian psyche, especially in prosperous and cosmopolitan Belgrade.

In a move befitting his reputation as a cunning political tactician, Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic appears to have hit on a formula for staying in power by turning voter apathy and confusion to his advantage. Milosevic has been under pressure from Yugoslav Prime Minister Milan Panic to call early elections and to allow the Serbian people to rethink their support for the regime that has led them to ruin.

Milan Milutinovic, Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic's handpicked candidate, was declared the winner Monday of a fraud-marred election for the presidency of Serbia. Opponents immediately cried foul. But this is a fraud international officials are not likely to protest too vociferously. The reason: Milutinovic's rival was an unpredictable ultranationalist whom the West refuses to recognize. Weary Serbs went to the polls Sunday for the fourth time in 2 1/2 months to elect a president.
