SUBJECT: SIERRA LEONE DELEGATION TO DAKAR OIC SUMMIT

1. On March 10, DCM spoke with Sierra Leone Director
General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Umaru
Wurie to inquire about the Sierra Leone delegation to the OIC
Summit and note the request for a meeting with Special Envoy
Cumber. Ambassador Wurie stated that Sierra Leone would be
very interested in such a meeting and noted he would provide
contact information. DCM provided DG Wurie the contact
information for Ambassador Ross and SE Cumber to facilitate
the meeting.

2. The Sierra Leone delegation to the OIC summit will likely
be as follows:

President Ernest Bai Koroma
Minister of Presidential Affairs Alpha Kanu
Minister of Foreign Affairs Zainab Bangura
SL Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Amadu Tejan-Sier
SL Ambassador to the Gambia and Senegal
Presidential Protocol Assistant, Mr. Byron Gilpin

3. Ambassador Wurie noted that the OIC had been helpful to
Sierra Leone, and offered the example of their assistance in
setting up a trust fund for reconstruction, working with the
Ministry of Development. The OIC also fielded a small
observer delegation to Sierra Leone's national elections in
2007.

4. Post will supply POC information when received.
