SUBJECT: U/S JARALLAH ON CIC REPRESENTATIVE

REF: A. STATE 206458 B. KUWAIT 03266



1. (U) This is an action request. Please see para. 3.



2. (C) The Ambassador raised the issue of Kuwait's
designation of a Council for International Coordination (CIC)
representative with MFA U/S Khaled Al-Jarallah during their
July 27 meeting. Jarallah said that Kuwaiti participation
would be "difficult" because the GOK had no official presence
on the ground in Iraq. When reminded by the Ambassador that
the GOK does have Ministry of Interior officials there as
part of Task Force Hope, Jarallah indicated Kuwait should be
willing to designate a representative, as long as security
could be assured. (Note: Kuwait currently has 7 Ministry of
Interior and 2 Ministry of Defense personnel attached to Task
Force Hope. All are there under the auspices of coalition
forces, to search for Kuwaitis missing since the Iraqi
occupation. End Note.)



2. (C) Action Request: Post requests department's assistance
in ascertaining what living and security arrangements will be
made for CIC representatives, so we may pass this on for GOK
consideration.



3. (U) Baghdad minimize considered.
