PolOff delivered demarche (ref a) to Zvi Rav-Ner, Director of
the MFA Central Europe Department, on March 4. Although
Israel has yet to recognize Kosovo, PolOff suggested that
given its history of past contributions, Israel may be able
to contribute to areas that are not directly related to
sovereignty such as agriculture, education or health.
Rav-Ner replied that it may be possible for Israel to
contribute along those lines and he promised to study the
Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF). He said the GOI
would notify the U.S. in advance if Israel decided to make a
pledge for the conference.
