Serbs pledged to take part in Kosovo's interim U.N. government in an effort to press the West to do more to help refugees return and stop ongoing ethnic violence against Serbs. The Serb National Council's decision to send observers came despite the absence of its most radical members, who boycotted the council session near Kosovo's capital, Pristina. Father Sava Janjic, a Serbian leader who will become an observer, said the decision is a "turning point." Kosovo is a province of Serbia, Yugoslavia's dominant republic.
