FOR OBO RE/PM/AQD AND PE/DE/ABF; AF/EX

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: ABLD AMGT ASEC DJ
SUBJECT: DJIBOUTI NEC SITE - REQUEST FOR OBO ASSISTANCE

REF: (A) STATE 092993, (B) STATE 091268, (C) DJIBOUTI 483



1. (U) Post acknowledges receipt of funding (Ref A) and is
pleased at the overall progress towards closing on the
Salines South site. Much has been accomplished in the
brief time allotted, and with the successful resolution of
a few remaining technical points regarding zoning,
construction timeline and geotechnical studies, we believe
that the final sales agreement can be signed in June,
commensurate with the visit of the OBO team from Eihorn
Yaffee Prescott.



2. (U) To that end, it is Post's considered opinion that
the final negotiations and resolution of remaining
geotechnical points will be greatly enhanced by the
presence of real estate and technical experts to lend
assistance. Post requests that REPM/AQD Vicki Hartung
travel to Djibouti to assist with negotiating the final
settlement. In addition, Post believes it would be very
useful if PE/DE/ABF T. Skep Nordmark could accompany the
team to resolve any last minute geotechnical issues.
