Kosovo - Nato

Robert speaks with Reporter Sarah Chayes about NATO resolve in standing up to the Serbian-dominated Yugoslav government. Before traveling to Belgrade today, US envoy Richard Holbrooke stopped in Brussels where he consulted with NATO ambassadors and the British, French and German foreign ministers. The allies gave Holbrooke a strong statement of support as he headed off to warn Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic that he must stop his offensive in Kosovo and accept a peace settlement. NATO officials today also gave NATO Secretary General Javier Solana an expanded authorization to order military action against Yugoslavia if Milosevic does not comply.
