REF: STATE 100316

(SBU) Poloff delivered the reftel demarche to the Zambian
Foreign Ministry on September 30. Between the UN General
Assembly meetings and President Banda's State visit to Cuba,
virtually every single Foreign Ministry official with an
interest in the issue is traveling abroad. The Principal
Economic Advisor for Development Cooperation at the Zambian
Foreign Ministry, however, acknowledged the importance of the
issue and the merit to the USG position and promised to relay
the points to her colleagues in New York as well as senior
Foreign Ministry officials in Lusaka. Post will discuss the
issue in more detail on October 16, during a set of meetings
to determine ways to more effectively collaborate on UN human
rights issues.
