I should be grateful if you would circulate the present letter and its annex as a document of the Security Council.
Assessment of the work of the Security Council during the presidency of the United States of America (August 2002)
Members of the Security Council held informal consultations on 22 August to hear a briefing by Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs Danilo Türk on developments in the Middle East. The Assistant Secretary-General informed the Council about the international task force meeting in Paris and the Secretary-General’s appointment of a Personal Humanitarian Envoy, Catherine Bertini. He also expressed concern about the uneasy calm prevailing along the Blue Line between Israel and Lebanon and urged interested parties to make efforts to bring an end to Israeli overflights of Lebanon and Hizbullah anti-aircraft firings over Israel that could lead to escalation.
