(C) We delivered reftel points to Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Senior Advisor, Kjell Hodnebo on October 2, 2006. Hodnebo
agreed with us that the East Sudan peace negotiations should
be more transparent. He also stated that recently announced
agreements between Khartoum and the Eastern Front on wealth
sharing and security issues were positive steps. According
to Hodnebo, Norwegians are planning to engage with the USG,
UK, EU, UN on building international consensus on how to
implement an East Sudan peace agreement (assuming it
happens). Norwegians envision something similar to, but
smaller than, the UN Joint Assessment Mission that followed
the Comprehensive Peace Agreement. Capacity building to
transform the Eastern Front from a resistance movement into a
true political organization would be one area of focus. On
Darfur and AMIS rehatting, Hodnebo wondered how follow-up
would be handled and how the US saw the best way to work with
Khartoum -- through quiet contact with other partners like
the AU or through more public diplomatic measures.
