Blix meets UNMOVIC's Commissioners ahead of Security Council briefing

Ahead of his briefing the Security Council on Friday, a top UN weapons inspector, Hans Blix, met in New York today with the College of Commissioners of the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC).

Mr. Blix, who is UNMOVIC's Executive Chairman, met with the Commissioners to discuss his recent trip to Baghdad and his upcoming briefing to the Security Council, according to a UN spokesman.

Spokesman Fred Eckhard said today's encounter was not part of the regular cycle of meetings for the College of Commissioners.

The Commissioners will meet again later this month in preparation for UNMOVIC's next quarterly report, due March 1, the spokesman said.
