Sir: Your article "Europe urges Annan to reform the UN" (21 January) is doubly wrong. I certainly do not support the closing down of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development or of the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation. In fact, the exact opposite is the case. I believe that the functions these organisations carry out are of great importance and that both should be sustained in a reformed United Nations.
