KLA names talks team
Adem Demaci: Opposed to peace talks
The ethnic Albanian Kosovo Liberation Army has named a team of five negotiators to take part in the peace talks in France this weekend.
The more moderate leaders of the two main ethnic Albanian civilian parties will attend the talks alongside the KLA negotiators.
The KLA team includes spokesman Jakup Krasniqi but not the rebels' political representative, Adem Demaci.
On Tuesday, Mr Demaci said that the KLA should not attend the peace talks on the grounds that the Yugoslav Government had consistently refused to negotiate in good faith or live up to agreements.
Mr Krasniqi confirmed on Tuesday that the KLA would "definitely" attend the talks.
The KLA delegation is also reported to comprise: Hashim Taci, Xhavid Haliti, Ram Buja and Azem Syla.
The Yugoslav Government is expected to decide on Thursday whether to attend the talks.
The international contact group last week ordered the warring sides to attend peace talks or face military action.
The KLA is fighting for the independence of Kosovo, where the population is predominantly ethnic Albanian.
