C O N F I D E N T I A L TRIPOLI 000599 SIPDIS DEPARTMENT FOR NEA/MAG E.O. 12958: DECL: 10/19/2016 TAGS: KNNP MNUC PARM PREL TS LY SUBJECT: LIBYANS DEMUR ON INVITATION TO EXERCISE LEADING EDGE REF: STATE 165179 CLASSIFIED BY: Ethan Goldrich, CDA, Embassy Tripoli, State. REASON: 1.4 (b), (d) (C) Charge met with Mohammed al-Ayaab, Americas Desk Director at the General People's Committee for Foreign Liaison and International Cooperation on October 18. Al-Ayaab conveyed a verbal response from Secretary Shalgam to Reftel invitation to Exercise Leading Edge that had been conveyed as a diplomatic note to the Libyan government. "Shalgam thanks the U.S. for the invitation and acknowledges that this cooperation reflects the improvement in our relations," Ayaab said, "but, unfortunately the time is too short for planning our participation because of difficulties during the Ramadan period." He explained that the Libyans were trying to determine if there was anyone from the government they could send as an observer to Exercise Leading Edge, but he did not know if they could coordinate a response before the October 29 designated arrival date in Bahrain. He hoped that Libya could participate in future PSI exercises. BERRY GOLDRICH
