After Tito's death in 1980, the villa was only one more time used officially: On 17.09.1991 under direction of peacemaker Lord Carrington the presidents of Serbia, Slobodan Miloševic and Croatia, Franjo Tuđman as well as the general of the Yugoslav People's Army, Veljo Kadijević met at Tito's fireplace in Villa Galeb.

This meeting was to prevent a slide of Yugoslavia in the war and to maintain peace. The last futile attempt.
