SUBJECT: NIGERIA: DEMARCHE DELIVERED ON INTEROPERABILITY
CONCERNS IN THE OSLO PROCESS

REF: A. SECSTATE 47101
B. ABUJA 318

Poloff delivered reftel A demarche to Charles Ononye, Deputy
Director of the First United Nations Division of the Nigerian
Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA). Mr. Ononye stated that
the previous demarche (reftel B) on the same subject had been
passed to colleagues in the Ministry of Defense (MOD) for
their input, but that as of yet, to his knowledge, the MFA
had received no response from MOD. He said he would follow
up with MOD on the previous demarche and add our new message
to it. He said he did not yet know what stance Nigeria would
take in Dublin, but said that, while his country is generally
a supporter of the Oslo process, he could see Nigeria
possibly taking some middle position, as is done with land
mines (i.e. banned for general deployment but with limited
use in training). Post will continue to follow up with MFA
on this matter and report on any substantive developments.
