REMARKS OF THE SECRETARY-GENERAL UPON ARRIVAL AT
HEADQUARTERS, 19 April 2001
Q: Quick question on the Middle East, where words really do seem to be failing at this point?
SG: I know. It is very dangerous and explosive situation and we are trying to work with all the parties concerned within and outside the region, and countries with influence on the region, to try and calm the violence, end the violence, and move the process on to the negotiating table, on all aspects of it - on the violence, on the economic deprivation, and on the political process.
For information media - not an official record
