SUBJECT: DAY OF SOLIDARITY WITH CUBAN PEOPLE: OMAN

REF: STATE 45792

(SBU) Post has determined that it is not feasible to organize
local events to mark the "Day of Solidarity with Cuba" in
Oman due to the lack of awareness or interest among Omanis
about Cuban affairs (Cuba has no diplomatic presence in
Oman), the absence of non-governmental partners with which to
conduct joint programming, and government controls on the
press that limit public discussion of human rights and
democracy. Post will, however, inform the government of USG
activities on May 21 to mark the event.
