REF: STATE 129764

(SBU) We carried out reftel demarche on September 19 with
MFA IO desk officer Emmanuel Pineda, who was familiar with
the planned meeting of the Community of Democracies on the
margins of the UNGA on October 1. He expressed general
agreement with the U.S. approach and indicated GOF engagement
on CD issues and at the October 1 meeting, but said that he
would offer comments at a later stage after further studying
some of the specific points made in reftel.
