SUBJECT: FRIENDS OF IRAQ CONFERENCE DRAFT AGENDA PASSED TO
FRENCH MFA

REF: A. STATE 56560 (NOTAL)
B. PARIS 973 AND PREVIOUS

We passed a copy of the draft agenda for the Friends of Iraq
conference (ref A) to French MFA DAS-equivalent for
Iran/Iraq/Arabian Peninsula Franck Gellet on May 28. As
noted in ref B, the GOF decided again not to attend the
conference because of its association with the MNF-I
coalition, of which France is not a member. We explained
that we were conveying the agenda for the GOF's information
and to underscore that its intention was to move well beyond
political and security matters in Iraq. Gellet offered no
response.
