SUBJECT: LATVIA: DAY OF SOLIDARITY WITH THE CUBAN PEOPLE

REF: A. State 45792, B. State 46997

1. Per reftels, Post would like to place an op-ed in local media,
and joins in Embassy London's request to receive generic text for
such an op-ed from WHA. In order to have time to translate the text
into Latvian, we would ask that text be made available by May 16.

2. In addition, we have spoken with the MFA regarding the May 21
event, noting the active participation by their embassy in
Washington at events to support Cuban democracy. The MFA is
currently considering how they may observe the Day of Solidarity
with the Cuban People, and whether the GOL would like to participate
jointly with Post in observance activities.
