Macedonia's defense minister in Kosovo visit for talks (AP)

PRISTINA, Serbia-Montenegro (AP) - Macedonia's Defense Minister Jovan Manasievski arrives in Kosovo Thursday for a meeting with top U.N. and local officials.

Manasievski, who is also Macedonia's deputy prime minister, will meet with Kosovo's U.N. chief Soren Jessen-Petersen, and with President Ibrahim Rugova and Prime Minister Bajram Kosumi.

Kosovo has been administered by the United Nations since 1999, following the NATO war aimed at stopping Serb forces' crackdown on independence-seeking ethnic Albanians.
