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

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

from the process".
