Complimentary opening,


...and has the honor of replying to your diplomatic note of
February 20, 2008 regarding Peru's candidacy for a
non-permanent seat of the United Nations Security Council for
the term 2018-19.

The United States applauds the Government of Peru's previous
service on the Security Council in the 2006-2007 period and
its contributions to collective security and peacekeeping
operations. The United States appreciates Peru's firm
dedication to the strengthening of multilateral dialogue and
international cooperation, as well as the protection of
international peace and security.

The United States is pleased that Peru wishes to again
participate actively in the United Nations as a member of the
Security Council. We welcome the opportunity to consider
Peru's candidacy for the Security Council. As a matter of
long-standing practice, however, the United States does not
disclose its vote in Security Council elections either before
or after the balloting.

Complimentary Closing.

End Text.
