Milosevic talks offer 'unacceptable'
Tens of thousands of Kosovo Albanians are fleeing from Serb forces
In a statement quoted by Yugoslav state television, Mr Milosevic said he is ready to withdraw some forces from Kosovo if Nato halts air strikes on Yugoslavia.
The United States said Mr Milosevic's pledges fall far short of what is needed to end Nato strikes.
The Yugoslav news agency, Tanjug, said a series of explosions were heard southeast of the capital, Pristina. It gave no details of damage.
Mr Milosevic's statement came after six hours of emergency talks with Mr Primakov in Belgrade. Russia, a traditional ally of the Serbs, has been one of the strongest critics of the air strikes, accusing Nato of genocide.
But a spokesman for UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said: "We have always made it clear that it is actions, not words, that count".
President Clinton has for the first time said the slaughter of ethnic Albanians in Kosovo could undermine international support for Serb territorial claims to the province.
Urging allies to"remain "steady and determined", he said: "If there was ever any doubt what is at stake in Kosovo, Mr Milosevic is certainly erasing it by his actions".
Tens of thousands of refugees have poured out of Kosovo, leaving aid agencies struggling against the deepening crisis.
UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan has urged the world to help with the crisis asking Albania, Macedonia and Montenegro to keep their borders open.
"Borders must be kept open, safety and protection must be given to those in need," he said.
US State Department spokesman James Rubin warned there were indications that genocide was taking place.
Roads are reported to be clogged with fleeing civilians, many of whom have been forced from their homes at gunpoint.
In the last three days more than 80,000 refugees have reached Kukes on the Kosovo-Albanian border, recounting stories of of Serb atrocities.
A transport plane supplied by the British government has been shuttling supplies from Copenhagen, Denmark, to the Albanian capital of Tirana.
European Union humanitarian affairs chief Emma Bonino is to travel to the region on Wednesday to assess the situation.
In Kosovo there are reports of summary executions, round-ups and massive expulsions.
The UN refugee agency, UNHCR, say they fear ethnic cleansing could ultimately lead to a quarter of the population being driven out.
Pec, a city of 100,000 residents in western Kosovo, is almost totally destroyed, says Nato spokesman Jamie Shea.
There are also reports that several leading Kosovo Albanians have been executed - including Fehmi Agani, the main adviser of the Kosovo Albanian leader, Ibrahim Rugova.
