Agreement over Russian role in KFOR has not been reached yet

Russian President Boris Yeltsin spoke by telephone to U.S. President Bill Clinton on Monday, Prime Minister Sergei Stepashin was quoted as saying by Interfax news agency. Stepashin was also quoted as saying he had discussed Kosovo with U.S. Vice President Al Gore in a separate telephone call. The Kremlin could not comment on the report and Interfax gave no immediate details. The two sides have yet to reach agreement on the main sticking points - Russia's demand to have control of a zone in Kosovo and its refusal to let troops serve under NATO command. The two leaders are also expected to meet next Sunday in Cologne, Germany at a summit of Russia and the Group of Seven industrial powers - the United States, Italy, Germany, France, Britain, Japan and Canada.
