Rice says UNSG BAN to establish office to service Iraq neighbors' meetings

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told journalists travelling with her en route to Ankara, Turkey last night, according to a State Department transcript, that UNSG BAN Ki-Moon is “ready” to establish a permanent office to service the “neighbors’ meetings” on Iraq: “This is the second neighbors ministerial and I think we expect it to become a recurring event because the parties are finding it useful. And with Ban Ki-moon ready to establish an office, permanent office to help provide continuity between the meetings, I think that this ministerial is now taking on the character of a forum in which people can repeatedly bring issues“.
