I should be grateful if you would arrange for the text of this letter and its attachment to be circulated as a document of the Security Council.
Further to our last meeting in New York on 21 April 2006, I would hereby like to convey to you the request of the Lebanese Government, upon its decision on 2 May, to extend the mandate of the said Commission for a further period of up to one year from 15 June 2006. We also look forward to the earliest conclusion of the agreement between the United Nations and the Government of Lebanon for the establishment of a court of an international character as provided for in resolution 1664 (2006), to bring the perpetrators of the said crime to justice.
I would like in this context to commend the work of Commissioner Serge Brammertz, and the high professionalism he has displayed in the exercise of his duties. The Lebanese Government hopes Mr. Brammertz will continue in his functions at the head of the Commission during the extended period.
I look forward to receiving your favourable decision.
