1. (U) On May 17, Pol/econoff received a call from Acting
Minister of Health Abdel Kader Munibari informing post that
he would not/not be traveling to Geneva for the World Health
Assembly Meeting. Advisor to the Minister, Dr. Ghazi Ismael
will lead the delegation. The reason for the personnel change
became apparent May 18, as Dr. Munibari was not reappointed
as Minister of Health in the new Cabinet announced that day.
2. (U) For US Mission Geneva: if possible, please reissue
invitation in the name of Dr. Ghazi Ismael as the
representative for Yemen to the lunch hosted by Secretary
Thompson for the board of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS,
Tuberculosis and Malaria. Post appreciates mission assistance
in this matter.
