CNN released a set of highlights from Kofi Annan’s appearance on Larry King Live set to start in mere minutes (depending on when you read this)…
Annan on US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice:
KING: Condoleezza Rice is going to the Mideast. We’re 10 days into this conflict. Should — the Lebanese, by the way, prime minister was with us yesterday, and he said his country is being torn to pieces. Should Ms. Rice have gone sooner?
ANNAN: I think she’s been busy discussing the possible solutions with many capitals and here in New York. As you know, she came to New York, and we had a working dinner. And she also talked to my team that went to the region this morning.
And obviously, she would want to go to the region but go with a package and proposals that will facilitate an agreement and negotiations.
And I’m sure she will go as soon as she’s ready, and as I hear, she’s going this weekend.
