1. (C) DCM and Poloff met with Vice Minister of Foreign
Relations Eduardo Calix and MFA Director General of Foreign
Policy Werner Romero on August 27 to deliver reftel points
regarding developments in Georgia. Calix said El Salvador
opposed Russia's invasion, and that Russia must respect the
terms of the ceasefire and remove its forces from Georgia.
He also stressed that it is important that the countries
reach a political solution, and return to the status-quo ante.



2. (C) Calix acknowledged that there was now the risk that
Russia's relations with the rest of the world could degrade
and the GOR could withdraw from participation in
international organizations. Calix mentioned Kosovo, but in
the context of pointing out Russia's hypocrisy supporting
South Ossetia's and Abkhazia's independence while objecting
to Kosovo's.
