Croatia Rebuffed

n SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina -- The Moslem chairman of Bosnia's collective presidency, Alija Izetbegovic, has rejected a proposal from neighboring Croatia to forge "special relations" between Croatia and the country's Moslem-Croat Federation, state radio reported.

The report said Bosnia would draw up its own proposals for discussion.

Izetbegovic did not elaborate on his position but senior Moslem politicians had already signalled that Croatia's proposals to form a monetary and customs union with the Moslem-Croat Federation in Bosnia were problematic.
