SUBJECT: UAE BRIEFED ON NEW US MISSION BAGHDAD

Ref: State 89241

Classified by Richard A. Albright, Charge d'Affaires,
a.i., reasons 1.5 (b) and (d).



1. (U) This is an action request. See para 4.



2. (C) Polchief delivered reftel briefing to UAE
Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Director of GCC Affairs
Yusuf Al-Ansari on May 8. Al-Ansari said he would
brief the Minister and the Under Secretary. He said
the detailed description of the planned US presence in
Baghdad and the governorates would be useful in
planning the UAE Embassy's growth.



3. (C) The UAE currently has eight diplomats,
including a Charge d'Affaires, at its embassy in
Baghdad. Al-Ansari said his government has not
decided on a nominee as ambassador to Baghdad. He did
say that any staffing increase after June 30 will
depend on the security situation in Iraq, and on the
breadth and depth of future UAE-Iraq bilateral
activities.



4. (C) Action request: Post would appreciate the
Department's assistance in helping us respond to the
following questions from Al-Ansari on future USG
operations and the post-transition period in general:

-- Does the US plan to open one or more consulates
outside of Baghdad, and if so, where?

-- Who will be responsible for the security of private
companies, say from the UAE? Coalition forces?
Private contractors? Are Iraqi security forces
capable of providing this security?

-- What person or body granted agrement to Ambassador
Negroponte? Will the new sovereign government be
required to approve it?

-- After the June 30 transfer of power, what will be
the approximate number of U.S. and non-U.S. employees
in the U.S. Mission?



5. (U) CPA Baghdad minimize considered.
