The Erdut Agreement (Croatian: Erdutski sporazum) (Serbian: Erdutski sporazum or Ердутски споразум), officially the Basic Agreement on the Region of Eastern Slavonia, Baranja and Western Sirmium, was the agreement reached on November 12, 1995 between the authorities of the Republic of Croatia and the local Serb authorities of the Eastern Slavonia, Baranja and Western Syrmia region, regarding the peaceful resolution to the Croatian War of Independence in the eastern Croatian regions. It was named after the village it was signed in, Erdut.
The signers were Hrvoje Šarinić, the former Prime Minister of the Government of Croatia and Milan Milanović, a local Serb politician representing the self-proclaimed Republic of Serbian Krajina, under instructions from the authorities of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The witnesses were Peter Galbraith, the ambassador of the United States to Croatia at the time, and Thorvald Stoltenberg, the United Nations intermediary.
The territory of Eastern Slavonia, Baranja and Western Sirmium had previously been controlled by the self-proclaimed Republic of Serbian Krajina, and before that by the SAO Eastern Slavonia, Baranja and Western Syrmia.
It was acknowledged by the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1023, and it paved the way to the establishment of the United Nations Transitional Authority for Eastern Slavonia, Baranja and Western Sirmium.
At the base of this agreement was established Joint Council of Municipalities with a Serbian majority population.
