      Serbia's ruling SPS party will not attend next week's conference
  20  on Kosovo in New York. SPS spokesman Ivica Dacic on Thursday said
      that the question of Kosovo was an internal political matter and
      the party would not participate in any discussion of it outside

      The Kosovo branch of the SPS on Thursday released the following
  25  statement. ``All those going to New York are automatically
      declaring themselves traitors to the state and national interests
      of Serbia and Yugoslavia. They are confirming that they are
      collaborators of known enemies of Serbia, both within and outside
      the country, who want to divide Serbia into several tiny states.''


      The Democratic Party of Serbia on Thursday met the Serbian
      Minister for Ownership Transformation, Milan Beko, to discuss the
      draft Law on Ownership Transformation. DSS representatives after
      the meeting expressed their support for the process of public
  35  debate, but said that the law did not define the aims of
      transformation. The Serbian Renewal Movement has refused to meet
      the minister, saying that it would present its views on the bill
      through the media.


  40  Representatives of Serbia's three largest trade unions said on
      Thursday that the draft bill on ownership transformation was not
      favourable to workers, and that the government must define what
      percentage of ownership would go to workers. The union
      representatives stressed however that efficient privatisation is
  45  essential for the Serbian economy.
