Q Akashi's letter -- U.N. -- United Nations --

MR. BURNS: Mr. Akashi's letter. I had a long comment on this letter on Friday, but I just would like to reiterate it in a couple of brief sentences. We think this letter should not have been sent. It was a most unfortunate letter. It did not comport with our understanding for the basis of the Rapid Reaction Force, and equally important on a matter of procedure which is very important at the U.N. Security Council, we were not notified, and it took us a long while to get our hands on this letter. So we're displeased that the letter was sent. We don't agree with parts of the substance of the letter. We have made that explicitly clear to the United Nations.

Q Thank you.

(The briefing concluded at 1:51 p.m.)
