SECRETARY OF STATE MADELEINE K. ALBRIGHT
ON-THE-RECORD REMARKS AT MEETING
WITH STATE DEPARTMENT PRESS CORPS
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2000
SECRETARY ALBRIGHT: And then one thing, if I might, on the record, is
in terms of Korea and searches. I sent a letter of regret to Foreign
Minister Paek about what had happened in Germany. And we have received
a reply. You don't know what I'm talking about, Barry.
Q: No, sorry.
SECRETARY ALBRIGHT: The North Korean delegation that didn't get here
because of what happened at the airport -- the airlines. And they
accepted the letter and they expressed understanding of the fact that
this is not a position of the United States Government and will not
affect in any way our continuing evolutionary relationship. They will
be coming to New York and we are putting this all behind us.
Q: You mean next week they're coming?
Q: For the General Assembly?
SECRETARY ALBRIGHT: Yes, yes.
Q: They're going to come to the General Assembly?
SECRETARY ALBRIGHT: The Foreign Minister is.
