SUBJECT: UN FLASH APPEAL FOR HUMANITARIAN RESPONSE IN IRAQ

REF: STATE 89192

1. (U) As requested ref, refcoord contacted UN Resident
Coordinator Christine McNab to ensure that UN officials in
Jordan have raised the UN flash appeal with GOJ officials.
McNab said that UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq Ramiro
Lopes da Silva will be in Jordan April 11-13 and will brief
senior GOJ officials on the appeal at that time.

2. (SBU) Although King Abdullah on April 9 directed the GOJ
"to take all necessary measures to launch a national campaign
to extend humanitarian aid and secure essential medical and
food supplies for the Iraqi people," we do not anticipate
that this campaign will include a contribution to the UN
flash appeal. Instead, the GOJ is likely to contribute
in-kind medical and technical assistance. The Foreign
Minister and Minister of Planning will launch the campaign
later today (April 10); we will report GOJ plans septel.
