PARTNERSHIP"

REF: STATE 56424



1. (SBU) We met with Ms. Trini Gunarti, Deputy Director of
the Department of Foreign Affairs Office of North and Central
American Affairs, to outline our ideas for creation of an
Asia Democracy Partnership (reftel). We pointed out that
Indonesia's experience in transitioning to democracy meant
that it had much to offer others in the region.



2. (SBU) Ms. Gunarti responded that Partnership would be of
interest of Foreign Minister Wirajuda, and asked whether the
United States was proposing to fund it. She also expressed
some concern as to whether participation in the partnership
was compatible with Indonesia's strong commitment to ASEAN.
We responded that at this point, we were proposing more
intensive consultations and soliciting input from prospective
partners. Ms. Gunarti undertook to share the proposal with
Minister Wirajuda's staff as well as the Department's Human
Rights and Inter-Regional Partnerships Directorate.
