USG's intention to rejoin UNESCO and our candidacy for the
Executive Board to the MFA Director General for Multilateral
Affairs Giovanni Castillo on March 25. Castillo said that
Guatemala welcomed the USG decision to rejoin UNESCO, and
said that the GOG could understand the USG's interest in
being on the Executive Board in view of the substantial
financial contribution the USG would be making to UNESCO's
budget. He promised to inform us as soon as the GOG has a
position on the U.S. candidacy.

considering proposing a candidate for the UNESCO Executive
