Question of Palestine home
6 August 2001
Letter dated 2 August 2001 from the Secretary-General addressed
to the President of the Security Council
I have the honour to refer to the command of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).
As you know, Major General Seth Kofi Obeng relinquished the command on 15 May 2001 and his Deputy, Brigadier General Ganesan Athamanathan, has been the Acting Force Commander. Following the usual consultations, it is now my intention to appoint Major General Lalit Mohan Tewari of India as Force Commander of UNIFIL.
I should be grateful if you would bring this matter to the attention of the members of the Security Council.
) Kofi A.
