GOVERNING BODY

REF: STATE 94801



1. (U) Pol/Econ delivered demarche per reftel 2 June to
Director of Bilateral Relations, Mohamed Ali Hassan. Hassan
stated that while Djibouti appreciates the U.S. requesting
assistance on its neighbor's behalf and explaining why it
will be supporting a particular candidate, it has a hard time
supporting a country that does not approach Djibouti directly
for assistance. He continued that if a country was looking to
be elected to a seat in an organization, it should approach
its fellow members first, before another member approached
others on its behalf. Hassan said that Djibouti sees great
value in partnerships and would welcome an approach by
Barbados, but without knowing the objectives and goals of
Barbados first-hand it would be difficult to lend its
support.
