SUBJECT: ICAO'S NINETEENTH AVIATION SECURITY PANEL MEETING

REF: STATE 51523

1. (U) Econoff presented reftel talking points to Dr. Richard
Masozera, Director General of Rwanda Civil Aviation
Authority. Dr. Masozera was just appointed to his current
position six weeks ago and was not aware of ICOA's Aviation
Security Panel of Experts (AVSECP) meeting scheduled to meet
in Montreal May 26-30. Dr. Masozera took note of USG
proposals for the AVSECP meeting and said that he would
contact the Rwanda Embassy in Canada and "request that they
attend the meeting and support the USG positions."

2. (SBU) Comment: Dr.Masozera was not aware of the AVSECP
meeting and was unfamiliar with the issues raised in reftel.
However, the Director General appeared well disposed to the
proposals and although new to his position, his
recommendation will carry weight with the GOR.
