TRANSCRIPT OF PRESS CONFERENCE BY SECRETARY-GENERAL KOFI ANNAN

AT UN HEADQUARTERS, 12 NOVEMBER 2002

...

Question:  Two things.  First of all, there is increased talk about the possibility of the Israeli Government deporting President Yasser Arafat.  The situation is rather horrible out there, so I was wondering what you think of this talk about deportation?

...


The Secretary-General:  On the first question, of course, I have also read the reports, and I hope this does not happen.  I think many governments around the world have indicated that it would be unwise to exile Chairman Arafat.  I hope this will not happen.

...


Thank you very much.
