U.S. Remarks with UAE Foreign Minister

Remarks with UAE Foreign Minister Abdallah bin Zayid Al Nuhayyan Before Their Meeting

Secretary Condoleezza Rice

Waldorf-Astoria

New York City

September 29, 2008

QUESTION: Madame Secretary, your reaction to Belarus elections?

SECRETARY RICE: No.

QUESTION: And any – and what are you hoping Chris Hill is going to achieve?

SECRETARY RICE: The North Koreans invited Chris Hill to come, so we hope that there is some effort to address the verification protocol, because that’s what we need. We need to move forward on the verification protocol. I think everybody is in agreement in the Six Parties, and – or among the Five Parties, and so we’ll look to see what they have to say. Thank you.
