U.S. Remarks with Kazakhstan Foreign Minister

Remarks with Kazakhstan Foreign Minister Marat Tazhin Before Their Meeting

Secretary Condoleezza Rice

Waldorf-Astoria

New York City

September 29, 2008

SECRETARY RICE: Morning.

QUESTION: Madame Secretary, the elections in Belarus fell short of Western standards, according to the OSCE?

SECRETARY RICE: I don’t have a comment on Belarus at this point.

QUESTION: Do you have a comment on yesterday’s resolution on Iran that was passed (inaudible)?

SECRETARY RICE: I think it’s a very positive step, the resolution on Iran. We had only sought a resolution that would affirm the unity of the six, and to let the Iranians know that that unity is very strong and that we’ll be moving forward, and now, the political directors will take up the issue moving forward.

All right. Thank you.
