Foreign ministers detect sso
movement in Kosovo peac

RAMBOUILLET, France (AP) - Despite
Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic's defiant
"no" to the chief mediator at the Kosovo peace talks,
the British and French foreign ministers said yester-
day they detected some progress.
With less than three days to go to the Saturday noon
deadline for reaching a three-year interim agreement
between Serbs and Kosovo Albanians, Foreign
Ministers Hubert Vedrine of France and Robin Cook
of Britain said both sides showed signs of moving
closer to a deal.
"It seems things are moving a bit,"Vedrine said on
the steps of the 14th-Century chateau in Rambouillet,
outside Paris, where talks have been taking place
since Feb. 6. "But there is only a little time left"

Key to any Kosovo peace agreement is the deploy-
ment of a 30,000-strong NATO force in the province
to ensure the deal is implemented. Belgrade's refusal
so far to consider allowing such a force on Yugoslav
territory has been a major roadblock in the talks.
Christopher Hill, the American who heads the inter-
national mediating team at the talks, flew to Belgrade
on Tuesday with a tough message for Milosevic: Sign a
deal by Saturday or face NATO missiles. NATO has
threatened to launch airstrikes on Yugoslavia if an
agreement is not reached by Saturday.
Milosevic, however, showed no sign of being intim-
