1. (SBU) We shared reftel talking points regarding the proposed
Global Partnership for Agriculture and Food (GPAF) with GOR
officials in the MFA's International Organizations Department and in
the International Relations Departments of the Ministry of
Agriculture, Ministry of Health and Social Development, and the
Federal Service for Consumer Rights Protection and Human Well-Being
(Rospotrebnadzor). On November 24, Grigoriy Ustinov, a second
secretary in the MFA's International Organizations Department,
advised us that the MFA had also shared the GPAF talking points with
the Ministry of Finance. He noted that the GOR was not yet prepared
to provide a substantive reaction to the proposed GPAF, as GOR
ministries were still reviewing the document. We will continue to
follow up with the relevant ministries and report any substantive
response.
