Colin Powell Take Note:
AUSTRALIA'S $1 billion aid package to Indonesia would not be wasted through aid agency incompetence, John Howard last night vowed.[...]Colin Powell and George Bush, please take note.
United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan toured the devastated province of Aceh as the world body took charge of the global relief operation for the disaster that left over 165,000 dead. But Mr Howard said he was determined there would be no UN involvement in Australia's massive package to Indonesia.
