participation. He also noted that Mauritius plays an
important regional role, notably as an aerial and maritime
crossroad, and Guibert viewed its participation in the fight
against nuclear terrorism as a very positive step. He also
noted that Uzbekistan's participation should facilitate the
fight against trafficking in various areas; moreover, its
membership reinforces the important role that Central Asia
plays in the Initiative. Regarding the GI conference in
Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Guibert has relayed the information
to colleagues in other ministries and will follow up as soon
as possible to indicate whether or not they will be able to
send representatives to the conference.
