Kofi Annan on UN Ambassador John Bolton in the NYT:

Mr. Annan paid his final visit to Washington as secretary general last Tuesday when President Bush gave a dinner in his honor at the White House. One of the guests was John R. Bolton, the American ambassador who had frequently criticized the secretary general and who had announced the day before that he was resigning.

Asked the next morning at the United Nations whether he and Mr. Annan had made peace at the farewell event, Mr. Bolton said, “Nobody sang ‘Kumbaya.’ ” The reference was to a song celebrating fellowship.

Told of Mr. Bolton’s comment, Mr. Annan said, “But does he know how to sing it?”
