SUBJECT: TANZANIA'S RESPONSE: RESTRUCTURING THE
INTERNATIONAL CONTACT GROUP ON SOMALIA

REF: A. STATE 041385
B. STATE 016168

1. (SBU) Minister Counselor Nelson Lyimo, the acting Deputy
Director of the Africa Department of the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs and International Cooperation, assured PolCouns
during an April 23 meeting that a representative of the
Government of Tanzania (GOT) would attend the International
Contact Group (ICG) on Somalia meeting in Oslo scheduled for
April 30. Lyimo appreciated the points on the consensus that
had been reached regarding the need to restructure the ICG
and the proposed role of the UN Special Representative of the
Secretary-General. However, he inquired whether the

SIPDIS
Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) had also
been consulted and agreed with the suggestions put forth by
the United States, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway and the
European Commission during their recent discussions.

2. (SBU) Post would appreciate guidance in responding to the
GOT's inquiry. Lyimo promised before April 30 to forward to
the Embassy the name of the Tanzanian representative who will
attend the Oslo meeting.
