CNN Mission: Peace

Bosnia peace treaty

Under the Dayton agreement, Bosnia is preserved as a single country with an elected president and parliament. But the country would be made up of two almost equal parts -- 49 percent for a Bosnian Serb Republic and 51 percent for a Bosnian-Croat Federation. Each side is to give up control of some land it held before the agreement was reached.

The capital would remain in Sarajevo, where checkpoints and closed bridges that divided the city's Serb and Muslim neighborhoods would be removed. Sarajevo would fall under the jurisdiction of the Bosnian-Croat Federation, a prospect that angers Bosnian Serbs who would be governed by their war enemies.
