SUBJECT: MAY 21 - DAY OF SOLIDARITY WITH THE CUBAN PEOPLE

REF: SECSTATE 45792

(U) In a May 14 meeting with ROK Deputy Foreign Minister Lee
Yong-joon, DCM conveyed reftel points, strongly urging MOFAT
to promote Cuba Solidarity Day. Lee said that ROKG's
position on Cuba was very close to that of the USG. South
Korea never normalized relations with Cuba; Israel and the
U.S. are the only other countries similarly without normal
relations with Cuba. Lee said he would discuss with his
colleagues on how the ROKG could promote Cuba Solidarity Day,
but noted that there was no public interest in this issue.
