TAGS: PREL KTIA CJAN LG
SUBJECT: Action request: Latvian dip note on extradition treaty


1. This is an action request. The Latvian MFA on June 28 sent post
a diplomatic note with the text in para 2. Action requested: Please
provide post with language to respond to this note. Given that the
Senate has not yet voted on the treaty, we believe language updating
on the treaty's status within the US Congress would be fine with the
GOL as an interim response.

2. Begin text of diplomatic note 54/727-5771:

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Latvia presents
its compliments to the Embassy of the United States of America and
has the honor to refer to the Extradition Treaty between the
Government of the Republic of Latvia and the Government of the
United States of America, signed in Riga on 7 December 2005.

The Ministry has the honour to inform the Embassy that the
Parliament of the Republic of Latvia (Saeima) has ratified the
aforementioned Treaty, Therefore the Latvian side would appreciate
the receipt of information regarding the completion of ratification
process at the corresponding institutions of the United States of
America in order to initiate the procedure of exchange of the
instruments of ratification.

[Complimentary close]

End text of dip note.
