SUBJECT: CONSTRUCTIVE OUTCOME OF GLADSTONE REPORT
REF: STATE 98567
(SBU) Poloff presented the reftel demarche to the Zambian
Foreign Ministry on September 30. Regrettably, most Foreign
Ministry officials with competence on the issue are either in
New York with the Zambian UN delegation or in Havana
accompanying President Banda on his State visit to Cuba.
Ikayi Mushinge, Principal Economist for Development
Cooperation, expressed appreciation for these points and
agreed to convey them to the Zambian delegation at the UN
General Assembly. If it has not yet done so, USUN may want
to relay these points to Zambia's UN Perm Rep Lazarous
Kapambwe or Assistant Director for International
Organizations Winnie Chibesekunda.
