"I talked to [Yugoslav President Slobodan Miloševič] and at one point I told him that if he'd like to rest after the negotiations that were supposed to take place [in Slovakia], we could go hunting. Miloševič scratched his head and told me: No more blood! No killing! I don't want to see blood anymore, neither human nor animal. No, no! I don't, I don't!"
Former Prime Minister Vladimír Mečiar at an April 15 press conference concerning his candidacy for the post of the Slovak President. He was asked how he viewed the Kosovo conflict in regard to the fact that Mečiar's HZDS party openly supported Miloševič and his government.
