UNITED NATIONS (AP) - Maj. Gen. Manuel Saavedra of Uruguay has been appointed chief military observer of the U.N. mission monitoring the line of control between India and Pakistan in Kashmir, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan announced Tuesday.


Saavedra, who has served in the Uruguayan armed forces since 1961, currently heads the Military Institute of Branches and Specialties. He served in the multinational observer force in Sinai in 1984 and as a sector commander in the U.N. mission in Cambodia in 1993.


The U.N. Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan was deployed in January 1949 to supervise a cease-fire between India and Pakistan in Kashmir. It currently has 49 members.
