MILOSEVIC AND KOSTUNICA TO RESPOND TO PUTIN’S PROPOSAL TO MEET THIS WEEK

Yugoslav leaders Milosevic and Kostunica will give their answer to Russian President Putin’s offer to get together in Moscow for discussing ways out of the Yugoslav crisis in the nearest future, special representative of Russia’s Foreign Ministry Vladimir Chizhov is quoted as saying. Chizhov and the other Russia’s representative Aleksandr Tolkach met on Monday with the Yugoslav opposition leader and presidential candidate Vojislav Kostunica and Yugoslav Foreign Ministry’s leadership, RIA Novosti reports. According to Chizhov, Russia hopes for a compromise to be eventually found. Despite its tough rhetoric, the opposition yesterday appealed once more to the Constitutional Court with the request to review the results of the election’s first round.
