SUBJECT: WCO FRAMEWORK OF STANDARDS DEMARCHE DELIVERED

REF: SECSTATE 94927

On June 3, Poloff delivered reftel talking points to Hector
Jones, Commissioner of Customs. Jones stated that he had
read the framework and thought that it was good. He asserted
that Jamaica is in agreement with the standards as they have
been put together by an international organization and "not
the U.S." As the framework gives strength to the World
Customs Organization (WCO), the WCO will gain worldwide
cooperation. Although Jamaica will not be attending the June
23-25 session in Brussels, Jones said, it will vote for
endorsement of the framework at the next Caribbean Customs
Law Enforcement Council Meeting (CCLEC) which will take place
June 13-16 in Santo Domingo. A member of CCLEC will present
Jamaica's position in Brussels.
