1. (U) EconPolCouns delivered ref (a) demarche on June 17 to
the Austrian Foreign Ministry's Director (assistant secretary
equivalent) for the Middle East and Africa, Ralph Scheide.

2. (U) Scheide thanked us for the suggestions, and noted
that Austria is engaged in several areas which appear on the
list (such as police training). Scheide said he was drafting
a public statement for release when Foreign Minister Ursula
Plassnik travels to Brussels for the conference. The
statement would review Austria's efforts to support Iraq,
including its forgiveness of 80 percent of Iraq's debt.

3. (U) Scheide said FM Plassnik had asked to make a
statement at the Iraq Conference under the Rule of Law and
Public Order agenda item. In that context, she would make a
Human Rights manual on CD-ROM available to the Iraqis and
other delegations.
