1. Ambassador discussed reftel points with MFA State
Secretary Bozo Cerar June 17. Cerar was interested to know

SIPDIS
how the sum of $205 million of Iraq debt had been attributed
to Slovenia. He explained that he was under the impression
that Serbia and/or Montenegro was claiming all this debt for
itself. At any rate, Cerar was not aware that anything had
been agreed among the FRY successors on this particular piece
of debt. Slovenia is not in a position to make a decision on
debt forgiveness until it is certain which portion of the
Iraq debt, if any, is ascribed to it. He agreed to look into
disbursing the rest of the funds Slovenia has previously
pledged. FM Rupel will lead the Slovene delegation to the
conference.
