The Secretary-General had sent a letter to the President of the Security Council informing him of his intention to appoint Ambassador Kai Eide of Norway as his Special Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Secretary-General had also decided to appoint Brigadier-General José B. Rodriguez Rodriguez of Spain as Chief Military Observer of the Military Observer Group for the Verification of Human Rights in Guatemala.

On the activities of Secretary-General Kofi Annan in Switzerland, Brandt said he had left Geneva that morning for Davos.
