CORRECTION

On page 10 of Press Release GA/COL/3019 of 21 July, the sixth paragraph should read as follows:

Another letter in the aide-mémoire was an e-mail from the United States dated 20 July requesting amendments to references concerning the 1993 elections in operative paragraph two. Also requested were alterations to operative paragraphs: four, referring to the Territory's indebtedness to service its Y2K problem; five, referring to the 1998 elections; six, referring to fiscal problems; and seven, assistance to alleviate the fiscal crisis. A third letter in the aide-mémoire was from Carlyle Corbin of the United States Virgin Islands stating that references to the fiscal situation of the United States Virgin Islands were a matter for the Federal Government to consider, not the Special Committee.
