1. On 7/18, Pol/Econ Chief met with Dr. Ahmed Alwan Mulhi,
Deputy Director of the Department of International
Organizations at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) to
deliver talking points on U.S. initiatives for the 59th UNGA.
Mulhi agreed that Yemen is generally supportive of promoting
economic freedom, democratization and reducing trafficking in
persons. He noted that Yemeni officials have been invited by
the UN to give a presentation on democratization in New York
in October or November highlighting Yemen's role as a model
for the region, but that no decision has been taken on
whether they will accept the offer.

2. Mulhi acknowledged that Emboffs have presented the U.S.
position on human cloning to MFA officials a number of times
(e.g., ref b) and commented that the issue is somewhat
political. He nodded when Pol/Econ Chief presented the
initiative on reducing the number of unbalanced Middle East
resolutions and abolishing the Committee to Investigate
Israeli Practices, but did not comment. He was pleased to
receive the points in English and Arabic and promised to pass
the information to the Foreign Minister expeditiously.

3. When asked about Yemeni initiatives and attendance at the
UNGA, Mulhi said that the ROYG has not yet decided on
attendees and is still discussing initiatives. He pledged to
stay in contact about attendees and meeting requests (ref b).
