Breaking News: Talks On Kosovo's Future Status Postponed Until Feb -UN

PRISTINA, Serbia-Montenegro (AP)--The start of U.N.-mediated talks to determine the future status of Kosovo have been postponed until February following the death of Kosovo President Ibrahim Rugova, the spokeswoman for the chief U.N. negotiator said Saturday.

Hua Jiag said face-to-face talks planned for Wednesday in Vienna were postponed "due to the mourning period." The negotiations between Serbs and ethnic Albanians aim to determine whether Kosovo will become independent or remain part of Serbia-Montenegro.
