SUBJECT: UNSCR/SOMALI PIRACY: FRENCH INFORMED

REF: STATE 47531

(SBU) We passed on May 6 reftel talking points to French MFA
IO and AF offices overseeing the Somali piracy issue. As
France is a co-drafter with the U.S. of the draft resolution
now circulating, we explained that we were providing reftel
material to inform the GOF of the message we were sending to
other UNSC members. We invited comment on or any reaction to
our points. Our contacts were occupied with the visit of
Somalia TFG President Yusuf, but AF DAS-equivalent Helene Le
Gal said that she would provide on May 7 a briefing on
Yusuf's visit and related matters, including the piracy
resolution.
