officially on whether or not to attend the NAM conference,
but said that a decision would be made by the end of the day
on July 25.

3. (SBU) Lauka assured the DCM that in the event Albania
decides to participate, it will attend as the guest of the

the deputy minister level only. Lauka said the goal of any
Albanian participation would be to lobby for recognition of
