(SBU) On May 25 and May 26, PolOffs delivered Reftel B talking points to Labor Ministry Director of External Affairs Ricardo Aguilar and Reftel A and B talking points to Arramenta Torres in the MFA's Office of Candidacies and Quotas. Aguilar received talking points before departing for the International Labor Organization (ILO) Conference, but could not be reached for comment. Torres referred a final decision on Cuba's candidacy to Aguilar in Labor, and said that a final decision on either the proposed 2006-2007 ILO budget or on Cuba's candidacy for the ILO Governing Body would not be made until early this week.
