Closing remarks of SRSG Atul Khare at UNMIT Press Conference, March 15, Obrigado Barracks, Caicoli, Dili

SRSG Khare: Well I think we close the press conference here. And since I formally close the press conference, I want to say something, today is, since the three months that I arrived it is now my 14th weekly press conference and in the next press conference I really want to encourage the sole woman, Timorese journalist that I see every time to ask the first question no matter what question you want to ask, first question not matter what. Thank you.

Well, it don’t come much more patronizing than that…..
Maybe she should ask him when the UN Secretary General will be a woman.

Hello. This is David from War Is Boring. Perhaps we should meet when I'm in Timor beginning April 2. I'd love to compare notes. Contact me off-blog at
