1. Emboff, drawing on reftels a and b, spoke on July 15 with
Don Sexton, First Secretary in the Development Cooperation
Division at the DFA. As Foreign Minister Brian Cowen is
unavailable and Minister of State for Development Tom Kitt is
currently in Darfur, Sexton stated the GOI plans to send a
not yet named senior level official from the Irish Embassy in
Washington, D.C. to the Haiti Donors' Conference.


2. In regard to reftel b, Sexton stated the GOI plans to
work with other EU Member States in support of the IGOH.
Sexton stated Ireland already contributed 500,000 euros in
response to the civil crisis in Haiti and additional pledges
will most likely be in line with pledges from other EU Member
States while not exceeding its initial 500,000 euro donation.
