13 December 2002

A team from the United Nations Security Council is set to travel this evening to Kosovo and Belgrade for talks with senior officials in both places, a UN spokesman said today in New York.

The four-day Council mission, led by Ambassador Ole Peter Kolby of Norway, is scheduled to arrive tomorrow in Kosovo, where it will meet over the weekend with senior officials of the UN Interim Administration Mission (UNMIK) and with the province's political and civil society leaders.

On Monday, the mission will head from Pristina to Belgrade, where it will meet with Yugoslav President Vojislav Kostunica, Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic and other senior officials.

The team is expected back in New York the following day, and will brief the Council on its trip on 19 December.
