Iraq (ICI) to MFA Director General for Multilateral Affairs
Lourdes Puma on April 19. Puma said the Foreign Minister's

not attend. Puma took the opportunity to reiterate, in a
very general way, the GOE's opposition to U.S. Iraq policy.
PolOff responded that the ICI was a major multilateral effort
involving the UN to help Iraq develop economically; Puma
reiterated that the Foreign Minister's schedule was full.
Asked if another GOE representative would attend, she
responded that it was highly unlikely.
