NPR's Sarah Chayes reports from Paris, where Secretary of State Colin Powell met today with the other five foreign ministers in the so-called Contact Group on the Balkans. {The ministers stressed the large degree of consensus within the Contact Group on the various Balkan issues. With regard to the recent fighting in Macedonia, they strongly supported Macedonia's territorial integrity and condemned violence by ethnic Albanian insurgents. As for Montenegro, which will soon hold a referendum on independence, they expressed support for a democratic Montenegro within the framework of a democratic Yugoslavia.}
