Abstract

On 17 January 2000, the Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, nominated Ambassador Rolf Ekeus of Sweden, the Executive Chairman of UNSCOM from 1991 to 1997, as Executive Chairman of UNMOVIC. However, although the United Kingdom and United States enthusiastically endorsed the choice, Russia, France and China were unwilling to agree. Consequently, on 26 January 2000, the Secretary-General nominated1 Dr Hans Blix of Sweden, the Director General of the IAEA from 1981 to 1997, as Executive Chairman and this nomination was approved2 by the Security Council on the following day. Dr Blix took up his post as Executive Chairman on 1 March 2000.3
