TAGS: ECPS UPU SZ SA
SUBJECT: SAUDIS REQUEST SUPPORT IN UNIVERSAL POSTAL UNION
ELECTIONS


1. Post received the following request for support in the
Universal Postal Union elections via diplomatic note on April
7, 2008.

2. Begin text: The Ministry has the honor to inform the
Embassy that the Government of Saudi Arabia hopes to be
re-elected to the Universal Postal Union Administrative and
Investment Councils of the UPU for the 2008-2012 tenure.
Elections will be held in Geneva, Switzerland from July 23 to
August 12, 2008.

Saudi Arabia's desire for re-election is based on its history
of contributions to regional and international postal
services. Saudi Arabia has been an active member of the
Administrative and Investment Councils of the UPU since 1979.
Saudi Arabia also chaired several UPU committees and
organized a very successful First International Postal
Information Technology Conference in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Postal Services have also made huge strides on both
national and international fronts. Saudi Post was awarded
the Universal Postal Development Award in 2007 and the Best
Postal Offices Network (one of the Cisco Networks Innovation
Awards).

In view of the above and the solid relations that exist
between our countries, the Government of Saudi Arabia looks
to the Government of the United States to support its
re-election to the Administrative and Investment Councils of
the UPU. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia reiterates its
commitment to exert every possible effort to realize the
goals and objectives of developing universal postal services.
