1. (U) Post delivered points contained ref A to Claudie
Senay, Policy Advisor for Humanitarian Affairs in DFAIT's
Human Rights, Humanitarian Affairs and International Women's
Equality Division, on May 19.

2. (U) In a follow-up discussion May 29, Senay said that
Canada recognizes the importance of minority returns to
Kosovo. In addition to funding from the Canadian
International Development Agency (CIDA) for long-term
development programs in Kosovo, GoC has provided funds to
UNMIK's Housing and Property Directorate, which is
responsible for establishing legal property titles and
determining compensation for seized property. Senay said
Canada is also providing funding to promote returns through
the local initiatives program at its embassy in Pristina (ref

3. (U) She said Canada would not commit to providing
additional support for returns at this time, adding that CIDA
will continue to consult with UNMIK about what steps can be
taken to improve the returns climate.
