From the opening statement of Edward R. Royce: "A priority for the International Relations Committee in this 109th Congress is reform at the United Nations, and today we will look at a long overlooked issue, which is the United Nations role in fighting terrorism. We will be looking at what the U.N. is doing, how well is it doing it, what should it be doing to meet the grave challenge of international terrorism, and is the U.N. worth reform efforts in this area? U.N. Security Council General Kofi Annan is emphasizing U.N. efforts to combat terrorism. Last week, speaking at an international summit on terrorism in Madrid, Annan laid out what he called a principled, comprehensive strategy to fight terrorism globally. The Secretary-General seems to understand the centrality of fighting terrorism to world security. Fighting terrorism is certainly central to our Nations security." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Edward R. Royce, Victor D. Combras, Anne Bayefsky, and Stephen J. Stedman.
