Question: Thank you, Farhan. Is the United Nations invited to attend the Manama meeting concerning financing of the Middle East? And who will represent the Organization at the meeting?
Deputy Spokesman: At this stage, I’m not aware that we will have anyone present. Our office… our Special Coordinator, Mr. Nickolay Mladenov, did receive an invitation, but we were considering it. I don’t believe he is attending, however. Maria?
