A key meeting is coming up on the United Nations' involvement in post-war Iraq.
A source says UN chief Kofi Annan will meet Tuesday with Secretary of State Powell and possibly President Bush. The topic will be plans for the dispatch of a UN team to Iraq.
The Bush administration is hoping the team can find a way to overcome protests by Shiite Muslims over the way the United States plans to hand over power to the Iraqis.
Annan has said he wants to be sure any U-N team sent to Iraq will be protected. He indicated earlier that progress was being made in that area.
