FOR JASON BUNTIN, USTR

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: KBCT ETRD ECON EFIN PGOV PREL IS KPAL DJ USTR
SUBJECT: 2005 NTE ON THE ARAB LEAGUE - DJIBOUTI

REF: STATE 262883

1. (U) Post's 2004 report on the subject remains valid.
Djibouti does not currently enforce any aspect of the
boycott against the state of Israel. Israel's import code
has not been removed from the local import codification
manual and remains 624; however, there is little to no
direct trade.

2. (U) Djibouti's 2005 presidential elections are unlikely
to bring any changes to the enforcement of the boycott. As
part of its foreign policy, Djibouti continues to be a
fervent supporter of the Palestinian cause and does not
hesitate to echo Arab condemnation of U.S. policy towards
Israel and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
