SUBJECT: NIGERIA: SOMALIA AND PIRACY DEMARCHE DELIVERED

REF: SECSTATE 18101

(SBU) On March 4, Poloff delivered reftel demarche to
Ambassador Charles Ononye, Deputy Director of the
International Organizations Department of the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs. Ambassador Ononye agreed on the need for
international aid to Somalia in its fight against piracy, but
believed that the steps described in reftel might be
premature given "the total absence of effective Somali
government." Nevertheless, Ambassador Ononye promised to
report any substantive response the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs might have, though none is expected.
