NotesNews : Nato and Russia closed ranks for the first time in the Kosovo crisis last night, tightening the screw on Yugoslavia by jointly supporting an international "Security presence" in Kosovo under the authority of the United Nations. In a watershed agreement, Russsia signed up to a set of seven "agreed principles" that echoed Nato's own demands of Slobodan Milosevic, and gave its backing to a UN security council resolution mandating an "effective force...capable of guarenteeing the achievement of common objectives." President Clinton last night hailed the agreement as "a significant step" toward ending the conflcit with Yugoslavia. But important differences remained last night between Washington and Moscow. Russia still insists that any force can only go in with the agreement of Mr Milosevic, and Nato, for its part, vowed yesterday to continue bombing.
