(SBU) On May 18, 2006, the Embassy received a diplomatic
note from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs concerning
Senegal's election to and attitude toward the UN Human
Rights Council. An informal embassy translation of the
note follows:

Begin text. "The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the
Republic of Senegal presents its compliments to the
Embassy of the United States of America in Dakar and has
the honor to request that the Embassy transmit to the
American government the Senegalese leadership's sincere
thanks for the United States' support for Senegal's
election to the UN Human Rights Council on May 9 in New
York.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs requests that the Embassy
convey the Senegalese Government's recognition that the
U.S. decision to support Senegal again underscores the
excellent, friendly and cooperative relations that exist
between the two countries.

"Perfectly understanding the importance of this election,
Senegal will endeavor to work with the United States and
other Human Rights Council members to make the Council an
effective body for the protection and promotion of human
rights and fundamental liberties.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of
Senegal thanks the Embassy of the United States in Dakar
for its willingness to transmit this message and seizes
this occasion to renew its highest regards." End text.
