Agriculture organization (FAO) High-Level Conference on World Food
Security to be held in Rome (Ref B). It is not clear whether
President Ortega will attend the conference, as reported locally.
It is possible he will remain in Nicaragua over the next several

battered Nicaragua's Pacific coast on May 29. Post has extended
invitations to MAGFOR to the U.S.-Philippine hosted lunch scheduled
for June 3 (Ref A).
