Kostunica is planning to rebuild shattered economy of Yugoslavia and end it’s international isolation with the help of USA and European Union

As the euphoria surrounding his inauguration faded, President Vojislav Kostunica received assurances yesterday from the United States and the European Union that help is on the way for Yugoslavia, crippled economically by 13 years of hard-line rule by Slobodan Milosevic. In his first day in office, the new president found himself facing daunting challenges. He is expected to rebuild a shattered economy, end Yugoslavia’s international isolation, and assemble a government with as few old faces as possible while placating a pro-Milosevic wing that still wields considerable power.
