1. (C) Following up on their meeting earlier that day
(reftel A) on Darfur ceasefire monitoring arrangements
(reftel B), late in the afternoon of April 20 the Ambassador
spoke again with Ambassador Carlos dos Santos, diplomatic
adviser to President Chissano. Dos Santos reported that he
had spoken with the Mozambican Ambassador in Addis Ababa, Ana
Nemba Uaiene, who reported a somewhat different version of
the April 19 meeting at the AU than that conveyed in the U.S.
demarche (reftel B). Uaiene characterized the meeting as
having been mainly focused on budget issues and that it had
been agreed to send a military observer mission to Darfur as
an interim measure. Ambassador Uaiene told dos Santos that
they still had not addressed the CFC, were considering
several proposals, and were aware of the U.S. position.


2. (C) While we are not familiar with Ambassador Uaiene, we
know she is one of Mozambique's most senior diplomats and
believe she plays a critical role in how President Chissano
handles AU issues. Given the differences in what she is
reporting back to Maputo and U.S. desire to have Chissano
weigh in on Darfur, it might be worthwhile to approach her
directly on the CFC.
