International Atomic Energy
Agency, is now the leading candi-

Blix, a 71-year-old Swede,
,merged as a compromise candi-
date after several members of the
U.N. Security Council - including
Russia, China and France --
objected to the nomination of Rolf
Ekeus, a fellow Swedish diplomat
who had been the first choice of
U.N. Secretary General Kofi
Ekeus, now serving as Sweden's
nbassador . in -Washington, was
strongly backed by the United States
because of his experience as the first
chair of the earlier U.N. weapons
inspection agency, known as
UNSCOM. But France, China and
Russia argued that "new blood" was
needed for the new agency, called the
U.N. Monitoring, Verification and
Inspection Commission, or
. According to diplomats here,
France first proposed Blix last
week, and the United States, Britain
and Russia agreed to support him as
a consensus candidate. China has
yet to respond but is not expected to
"I guess we have a deal," said a
senior Western - diplomat. "The
United States has said it will agree if
everybody else agrees."
Sources said, however, that
Richard Holbrooke, the U.S. ambas-
sador to the United Nations, was
awaiting a formal reaction from
China before informing Annan that
the Security Council's key members
have agreed on a candidate,
Diplomats also cautioned that

two years ago and is now touring

ask whether he would consider the

one diplomat. "But he said that if he

MINAS HUANTAJAYA, Chile - In
a country where powerful interests sup-

military patriarch has not been easy.

Clinton's emergency proposal to help

Colombia's anti-narcotics operation.
"This is an island in a sea of guerril-

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP)- Elian
Gonzalez and his grandmothers
arrived yesterday at a "neutral site" for
a reunion that had to be arranged by the
U.S. government because of the per-
sonal and political passions swirling
around the 6-year-old Cuban boy.
Elian was driven to a nun's house in
Miami Beach to see his grandmothers,
who had flown in from Wangton and
were then brought to the home in a
The grandmothers came to the
United States last week to appeal direct-
ly to the American people and Congress
to send the boy back to his father in
Cuba. Elian's relatives in Miami want
him to stay and are fighting a U.S. gov-
ernment order sending him back.
The grandmothers were to see Elian
privately, with the boy's Florida rela-
tives nearby in the house.
Justice Department spokesperson
Carole Florman said the women would
not be allowed to take the boy home
with them afterward. A lawyer for
Elian's relatives, Spencer Eig, said the
visit was expected to last two hours.
A few people tossed flowers at the car
that took the women from the helicopter
to the house. Some demonstrators out-
side the home cheered and others booed
as the grandmothers were driven by.
The grandmothers had also flown to
Miami on Monday but left town with-
out seeing Elian They said they were
uncomfortable going to the house in
Miami's Little Havana neighborhood
where the relatives have been caring
for the boy. Anti-Castro Cuban immi-
grants have been holding protests
around the home.
Mariela Quintana and Raquel
Rodriguez had not seen their grandson
since before he left Cuba for the
United States with his mother, who
died along with 10 other people when
their boat capsized. Elian was found
clinging to an inner tube off the
Florida coast on Nov. 25.
The reunion was being held at the
home of Sister Jeanne O'Laughlin,
president of Barry University.
It's our right o see our grandson
an take him back home."
- Mariela Quintana
Elian Gonzalez's paternal grandmother
O'Laughlin, has a history of helping
immigrants and had said she would
serve as "welcomer" and "hugger."
On Capitol Hill, Senate Majority
Leader Trent Lott indicated he has no
solid plans for handling legislation next
week to give Elian U.S. citizenship,
which would remove the boy from the
jurisdiction of the Immigration and
Naturalization Service, the agency that
ordered him back to Cuba.
"There are a lot of extenuating cir-
cumstances," Lott said. "Obviously it
could come up next week. But there
are a lot of people looking at this issue
and there may be developments
between now and then."
The two grandmothers met with sev-
eral members of Congress this week
and asked them not to pass such a bill.
"It's our right to see our grandson and
take him back home," said Quintana,
the child's paternal grandmother.
