TAGS: UNSC PREL PGOV PBTS MO WI CS
SUBJECT: DEMARCHE DELIVERED: PRESSING FOR A FIFTH ROUND OF
WESTERN SAHARA TALKS

REF: SECSTATE 88765

Classified By: Political/Economic Counselor David E. Henifin for reason
1.4(d).

1. (C) On August 19, we delivered reftel demarche to Carlos
Cordero at the MFA's Department of Disarmament, Terrorism and
Organized Crime, who is following Western Sahara
developments. Cordero said that if one party did not accept
the envoy, then he (Walsum) could not be an effective
mediator. The GOCR therefore believed it would be very
difficult to hold talks with Walsum as mediator since he had
lost confidence.

2. (C) Cordero noted that the GOCR still favored the old
Baker plan as a solution. He added that the parties should be
given every opportunity to decide their fate, with all of the
options at their disposal -- including the option of
independence. Cordero said the GOCR would prefer the idea of
holding talks with another facilitator, such as
Under-Secretary-General Lynn Pascoe.
