Belgium's foreign minister was visiting Kosovo on Thursday to meet with local officials over the upcoming U.N.-mediated talks on the disputed province's future status.

Karel De Gucht, who is currently OSCE's chairman-in-office, will meet with Kosovo's newly elected President Fatmir Sejdiu, members of the province's negotiating team and representatives of the Serb minority.

Kosovo has been administered by the United Nations since 1999. The OSCE is part of the U.N.'s administration in the province, tasked with its democratization.

Talks between officials from Kosovo and Serbia on the province's future will take place Feb. 20-21 in Vienna, Austria, reports the AP.
