Chernomyrdin to present new Kosovo peace plan

The Russian special envoy for Yugoslavia, Viktor Chernomyrdin, says he will present new proposals for resolving the Kosovo conflict to President Yeltsin on Monday.

Mr Chernomyrdin had talks in Moscow on Friday with the Yugoslav ambassador as well as with ambassadors from NATO countries.

The Russian ambassador to Germany Sergei Krilov has meanwhile been quoted as telling a German magazine Focus that Russia would participate in a Kosovo peace force under a UN or OSCE mandate.

But he said it would not do so alongside NATO countries currently involved in the air attacks.
