Day". Whereas August 1, 1993, is the 18th anniversary of the signing of

the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) (hereafter referred to as the “Helsinki Accords”); Whereas the participating States have declared that “the protec

tion and promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms and the strengthening of democratic institutions continue to be a

vital basis for our comprehensive security''; Whereas the participating States have declared that "respect for

human rights and fundamental freedoms, including the rights of persons belonging to national minorities, democracy, the rule of law, economic liberty, social justice, and environmental responsi

bility are our common aims”; Whereas the participating States have acknowledged that “there is

still much work to be done in building democratic and pluralistic societies, where diversity is fully protected and respected in prac

tice"; Whereas the war in Bosnia-Hercegovina has resulted in organized,

systematic, and premeditated war crimes and genocide and

threatens stability and security in Europe; Whereas growing ethnic tensions, civil unrest, and egregious

human rights violations in several of the newly admitted CSCE states, most notably in Tajikistan, are resulting in significant vio

lations of CSCE commitments; and Whereas the CSCE has contributed to positive developments in

Europe by promoting and furthering respect for the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all individuals and groups and provides an appropriate framework for the further development of such rights and freedoms and genuine security and cooperation among the participating States: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, SECTION 1.
