REF: SECSTATE 100623



1. (U) Pol/Econ delivered demarche per reftel 2 June to
Director of Bilateral Relations, Mohamed Ali Hassan. Hassan
replied that it is not Djibouti's tendency to take positions
on every crisis in the world. He explained that Djibouti's
diplomatic corps was much smaller than that of the U.S. As it
does not have representation in Uzbekistan, it is difficult
for Djibouti to know first-hand the real situation on the
ground. Hassan continued that in this case, since Djibouti
and Uzbekistan were both members of the Organization of the
Islamic Conference (OIC), it would wait until the ministerial
council of the OIC reviewed the facts and debated them to
take a particular position.
