SUBJECT: FRANCE ON GLOBAL FORUM V ON FIGHTING CORRUPTION

REF: STATE 33001

1. (U) Econ Counselor raised reftel points on the Global Forum
on Fighting Corruption with DAS-equivalent Cyrille Pierre and
desk officer Francois Legue on March 23 and 26. Legue said the
French delegation to Johannesburg would be led by
Ambassador-at-Large for the Fight Against Organized Crime,
Jean-Pierre Vidon. (Legue will join the delegation.)

2. (SBU) France shares U.S. views on the need to focus attention
on promoting the UN Convention Against Corruption, and on
international cooperation on asset recovery efforts. It would
encourage a final declaration that reflected these concerns.
Legue expressed a degree of surprise over U.S. intentions to
consider ending the Global Forum process, but he did not say
that France would oppose such a move. He promised to brief
Ambassador Vidon on the U.S. position in advance of GF V.
