1. We delivered Ref A demarche on July 2 to Deyanira Ramirez,
MFA UN Desk Officer. She was pleased that Kosovo remained a
top U.S. priority and that the U.S. was seeking wider
recognition of Kosovo's independence, given that Costa Rica
was one of the first nations to grant recognition (Ref B).
However, Ramirez expressed that Costa Rica would not be among
the donor countries.
