UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan described the recent draft agreement on the KR tribunal

as a "considerable improvement" on the previous text in his April 7 report

to the UN General Assembly. However he noted that "there still remains doubt

in some quarters regarding the credibility of the Extraordinary Chambers, given the

the terms of the draft agreement, any deviation by the Government from the obligations

undertaken could lead to the United Nations withdrawing its cooperation and assistance

from the process".
