REF: COOK-MATTEI E-MAIL OF 4/24/08

1. (U) Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade

Government of Canada had received approval from Parliament to
bring into force the Agreement on Integrated Lines of

response to State L/T on September 15.

States of America relating to the Establishment of Integrated
Lines of Communications to Ensure Logistic Support for the
Canadian Armed Forces and the Armed forces of the United
States of America, done at Washington on 23 April 2008.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade is
pleased to welcome the confirmation that the Government of
the United States of America has completed the internal
procedures required to bring the Agreement into force.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade
wishes to inform the Embassy of the United States of America
that the Government of Canada, in accordance with Article XI
