SUBJECT: CLIMATE CHANGE AND WIREC DEMARCHES DELIVERED

REF: A. STATE 75287
B. STATE 80334

Emboff delivered the fact sheet on President Bush's new
international climate change framework initiative (ref A) to
Jimena Nasif and Miriam Siles from the ministry of foreign
affair's office of multilateral relations on June 13. During
the same meeting, Emboff also discussed the Washington
International Renewable Energy Conference (WIREC) to be held
in March 2008 (ref B). Nasif responded that the foreign
affairs ministry would review President Bush's proposal and
would raise the issue of WIREC with the relevant ministries
to encourage participation and determine which ministry would
take the lead on the issue. Nasif noted that the ministry of
development planning would likely have that role, as it is
already considering the issue of climate change. Other
possible WIREC participants include the ministry of
hydrocarbons, the vice ministry of electricity and
alternative energies, and the ministry of agriculture.
However, Nasif noted the high probability that particular
ministers and vice ministers currently in charge of those
areas would change prior to March 2008.

Campbell On: the US demonising of Iran

Satan may not exist, but the Evil One has always been a handy tool for priests and politicians alike.

Currently, Iran is the latest bogey conjured up by Washington to (a) justify its foreign policy interventions and (b) distract attention from its foreign policy failures.

Once upon a time, the Soviet Union was the nightmare threat for the entire Cold War era – and since then the US has cast the Taliban, al Qaeda, and Islamic State in the same demonic role. Iran is now the latest example…More
