PARIS FOR U.S. UNESCO OBSERVER MISSION

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: AORC YM UNESCO
SUBJECT: UNESCO: YEMEN ENDORSES U.S. CANDIDACY/ ASKS U.S.
TO SUPPORT ITS CANDIDATE

REF: A. STATE 143095

B. SANAA 1249

1. Acting Chief of the MFA's Office of International
Organizations, Abdul Wahad Fara'a, informed PolEcon Chief on
6/24 that the ROYG will support the U.S. candidate for
UNESCO'S Executive Council, in the event that the election
goes to the full membership.

2. At the same time, Fara'a asked that the U.S. consider
voting for the ROYG candidate if a full membership election
procedure is necessary for its group. The candidate, Dr.
Hussein Abdullah al-Omari, is a former Minister of Foreign
Affairs, Education and Agriculture, Ambassador to the U.K.,
Member of Parliament, and currently a member of the ROYG
Consultative Council. He is a noted author of books on
Yemeni and Arab history.

3. Comment: With UNESCO's designation of the capital city
of Sana'a as the 2004 Cultural Capital of the Arab World, the
ROYG would obviously appreciate having a representative on
the Executive Council during that period. End comment.
