On Syria, How Will UN Release Report, After Kane's "Interested Countries" Session?

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, September 5 -- How much can the UN rush its Syria chemical weapons report, and to whom will it give the report? Inner City Press asked UN spokesperson Farhan Haq both questions on Thursday.

At the G20 in St. Petersburg European Council President Herman Van Rompuy was quoted that he expected "the findings to be revealed later Thursday."

Inner City Press asked, to get it denied or confirmed; Haq said no, there will be no report today.

But when it is release, to whom will that be? Inner City Press asked about the meeting High Representative for Disarmament Angela Kane held in the North Lawn Building, supposedly only with the countries who wrote asking for a probe of Ghouta.

How can the UN do that? Several member states have asked Inner City Press about it, and whether they will get a copy of the report, or only these requesters.

When Inner City Press asked, Haq said some three dozen interested countries were there. Inner City Press asked, including Syria - as a requester? As an interested country. But aren't there more (or less, depending on the legal standard) than three dozen interested countries?

Inner City Press asked who will get the report. Haq said Ban has said the Security Council and all member states. But in what sequence? Who defines "interest"? Watch this site.
