1. (SBU) On 4/15, D/Polcoun delivered reftel points with U.S.
views on the April 28-30 Community of Democracies Ministerial
to Foreign Ministry North American Affairs Director Nestor
Popolizio, and to Human Rights and Social Affairs Director
Carlos Roman. Popolizio told Emboff that he expected Foreign
Minister Manuel Rodriguez would want to lead the Peruvian
delegation to Santiago, but that it would take a few days to
work this out. He said that given the nature of the pending
bilateral issues between Peru and the U.S., there was a good
possibility that FM Rodriguez would be interested in a
meeting with the Secretary.

2. (SBU) In a separate conversation, Roman told Emboff that
he was putting together a proposal on the importance of young
people and their preparation to participate in the labor
market as a means of fortifying democracy. He said that a
draft was being reviewed by the Ministry and by the Peruvian
Embassy in Santiago, and that he would be able to share this
document with the Embassy within a week or less.
