WASHINGTON (AFP) - According to the New York Times, President George Bush sent a message to the Serbian President, Slobodan Milosevic, last week cautioning Serbian leaders that 'in the event of conflict in Kosovo caused by Serbian action, the United States will be prepared to employ military force against the Serbs in Kosovo and in Serbia proper'.

Neither the White House nor the State Department would comment on the report. The department spokesman said the US was 'deeply concerned about the situation in Kosovo'.
