12 November 2001

The United States today made another large payment in the amount of $475 million towards the payment of its peacekeeping arrears, a UN spokesman said on Monday.

As a result of this payment, the US debt to the UN, including dues to the regular budget, peacekeeping and tribunals, now stands at $1.069 billion.

Washington owes just over $265 million for the regular budget, $789 million for peacekeeping, and $14.6 million for the operating expenses of two courts set up by the Security Council -- the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
