On November 2, Vasilis Philippou, a first secretary in the
Cypriot Foreign Ministry's Multilateral Affairs division,
informed the Embassy that the RoC had decided, after careful
analysis (Refs B, C), to support the U.S. candidacy for an "A
Category" seat in the International Maritime Organization
(IMO) council. Philippou restated his earlier request that
the USG give Cyprus's candidacy for a "C Category" slot full
consideration.
