Yugoslavia's main republic, Serbia, said Saturday it would step up action to counter what it called an ongoing Western propaganda war against the country.
"The next year will be even more difficult than this one. We have no illusions because we know who our enemies are and we know how those who conducted military aggression against our country will continue to exert pressure," Information Minister Aleksandar Vucic told a news conference.
He said his ministry would start publishing daily bulletins in English, open new Internet Web sites and work closely with state media on satellite transmissions of their broadcasts.
"As a country we have been exposed throughout this year to permanent information torture from the Western media and their local branches . . ." said Vucic.
