1. The following demarches were delivered between June
28 and July 7, 2005.

2. Over-Fortification of Small Amounts of Food Aid (REF
A) -- Although none of the food aid referenced in the
cable went to the Republic of Congo, Econ/Cons Officer
presented the demarche talking points to two NGOs
working with US food aid in Congo/B, International
Program for Human Development and the World Food
Program, in case they may have received some of this
food aid indirectly. Both NGOs report that they do not
believe that they ever received any of the referenced
food aid. Non-papers were provided for reference
purposes.

3. Response Request on Swiss proposal for Conference on
the Third Additional Protocol to the Geneva Convention
(REF B) -- Delivery of the demarche was late because
post was not slugged to receive either this or the
original demarche cable (REF C). Econ/Cons Officer
delivered to Ambassador Kaya, the Interim Secretary
General of the MFA, the French version of non-paper on
July 8, 2005, with the request for a response as soon
as possible.

4. African Nations and UN Reform (REF D) -- On July 1,
2005, the Ambassador covered the talking points with
Kaya at the post's Independence Day celebration. The
US position and priorities for UN reform were already
presented to Kaya (see REF E) and he said they would
convey the points to already departed delegation.
Econ/Cons Officer transmitted the French version of non-
paper on July 7, 2005.
