TAGS: PREL PGOV SO DJ
SUBJECT: SOMALIA - IGAD DEPLOYMENT PLAN AND DJIBOUTI

REF: SECSTATE 47850

Classified By: Ambassador Marguerita D. Ragsdale.
Reasons 1.4 (B) and (D).



1. (C) Ref Message reached post after the departure of the
Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs for the Arab League Summit
in Algiers. In his absence, Ambassador presented the
demarche March 20 to Ahmed Ali Bogoreh, Secretary General of
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and highest ranking official
currently at the Ministry. Bogoreh is not directly active on
Somalia issues, and is primarily a conduit. As usual, he
pledged to pass our message to the highest levels of
Djibouti's government.



2. (C) Both the Acting Foreign Minister and President Guelleh
are due to return to Djibouti on/about March 25 from Arab
League meetings in Algiers. We will re-visit Somalia in
general with the Acting Foreign Minister at that time. We
note that when Prime Minister Dileita Mohamed Dileita was in
Ethiopia March 9, he is said to have agreed with Kibaki and
Meles that Kenya, Ethiopia, and Djibouti would not/not send
troops to Somalia but that the IGAD states of Uganda and
Sudan would. We have not independently confirmed this.
