Secretary Powell's Travel to New York for the United Nations 56th General Assembly

U.S. Secretary of State Colin L. Powell will travel to New York City on Friday, November 9, to attend the United Nations 56th General Assembly. Secretary Powell will accompany President Bush at the General Assembly General Debate from November 10 to 11. The Secretary also will conduct a number of bilateral and multilateral meetings with his counterparts and world leaders.

The State Department Press Office will establish an office in Suite 24M of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, 301 Park Avenue (between 49th and 50th) in New York City during the Secretary's visit. That Press Office will open at 8 a.m. on Saturday, November 10 and will operate until the conclusion of the Secretary's visit. The telephone for the Press Office in New York is (212) 838-8135. Details of the media coverage for Secretary Powell's schedule will be provided later. Daily schedules and transcripts of the Secretary's remarks will be available in the Press Office. The Press Office will also serve as the collection point for press planning to cover the Secretary's events at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

Please note that, as in past years, the State Department will not provide phone lines or office equipment for press use; nor will the Department establish a filing center at the hotel. Journalists must make their own filing, communications, and equipment arrangements and are encouraged to use mobile phones and/or pagers.

Journalists covering any events at the United Nations must contact the United Nations Press Office in New York at (212) 963-6934 to obtain appropriate press credentials. Journalists who intend to cover Secretary Powell's events in New York are encouraged to provide their New York contact information to the State Department Press Office, either in Washington at (202) 647-2492, or in New York at (212) 838-8135 after 8 a.m. on Saturday, November 10.
