SUBJECT: DEMARCHE DELIVERED: SEEKING ADDITIONAL SUPPORT FOR AMISOM

REF: STATE 24665

(SBU) In a March 18 conversation with the MFA International
Organization officers responsible for Security Council matters,
Deputy PolCouns urged Vietnam to support the African Union Mission
in Somalia to the upmost of Vietnam's capabilities. Per reftel,
DPolCouns emphasized in particular that a public statement of
support from Vietnam when the UNSC meets to discuss Somalia March 20
would be particularly welcome. MFA IO officer To Anh Tuan
reiterated Vietnam's strong support for AMISOM and said that he
would relay the substance of the demarche to his superiors in the
MFA leadership and to his colleagues in New York.
