SUBJECT: SWEDISH RESPONSE: DEMARCHE REQUEST: ATTENDANCE AND
DONATIONS FOR JUNE 23 VIENNA CONFERENCE ON RECONSTRUCTION
OF LEBANON'S NAHR AL-BARID REFUGEE CAMP

REF: STATE 60216

(SBU) On June 18, Deputy Economic Counselor delivered reftel
points to Eva Areskoug, Deputy Director, Department for
Security Policy, at the Swedish MFA. Areskoug commented that
Sweden is a strong supporter of the United Nations Relief and
Works Agency and remains engaged in efforts that resulted
from a substantial Swedish financial commitment made in
connection with the Lebanon Conference in 2006 in Stockholm.
She noted that Sweden will not be able to send any
senior-level participants from Stockholm due to extremely
busy schedules and has therefore instructed the Swedish
embassy in Vienna to represent Sweden at the conference.
Areskoug added that Sweden has not made any decisions
regarding pledges for reconstruction or which individuals
from the embassy will attend the conference.
