E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PHUM AORC PE USOAS
SUBJECT: PERU: OAS WORKING GROUP ON RACISM

REF: STATE 82983

1. Poloff delivered the demarche on the proposed OAS Working
Group on Racism (Reftel) to the Foreign Ministry's Director
of Human Rights, Carlos Roman, and to its Director of OAS and
Hemispheric Affairs, Carlos Chocano, on 5/5. Neither offered
an official reply. Chocano indicated, however, that Peru has
historically backed initiatives against racism put forward by
Brazil in the OAS. Unofficially, Roman said that Peru had
reacted favorably to the proposal for the working group to
develop an Interamerican Convention in consultations with
Brazil.

2. Emboffs will continue to raise this issue with the
Foreign Ministry.
