E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: EAIR ELTN EWWT NA
SUBJECT: NICARAGUAN AND WHTI MEETING

REF: STATE 132219

1. On July 15, Post contacted the Nicaraguan Ministry of
Transportation, which could not confirm receipt of an
invitation to the Western Hemisphere Transportation
Initiative (WHTI) Meeting or the attendance of Minister Pedro
Solorzano at this time.

2. The one pending bilateral transportation issue of
importance involves civil aviation and the effort to move
Nicaragua from a Category 2 to Category 1 country rating.
Last November, the FAA conducted a technical review of the
Nicaraguan Civil Aviation Administration in preparation for a
full audit. Pending legislation in the National Assembly,
which will modernize Nicaragua's civil aviation authority in
accordance with ICAO standards, has been delayed since
October due to political considerations.

3. Post will provide an update if Minister Solorzano
confirms his attendance at WHTI.
