1. (C) Pol/Econ delivered demarche per reftel 23 November to
Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Badri
Ali Bogoreh. Bogoreh agreed that the UNSC meeting in Nairobi
was historic and showed the commitment of the International
Community. He added that this meeting also showed the
commitment of the Sudanese government to finding a final
solution. He posed the question whether it would be wise to
encourage Sudan to pursue a good path or to continue
condemning it. Bogoreh said Djibouti would wait to see how
the vote on the procedural motion went, then decide on the
EU's resolution. He added Djibouti was in a delicate
situation because Sudan is a friend and partner in IGAD.
Bogoreh said that Djibouti should be very discreet when
taking actions. Pol/Econ countered that the intent of the
request for support on the EU resolution was to reinforce the
message given by the Security Council and show the
international community was fully committed to supporting the
establishment of peace and stability in Sudan. Bogoreh
replied that peace is essential to Sudan, human rights as
well, but Djibouti would wait and see on the resolution.
