1. Polcouns, on 9/11, informed Daul Matute, the Foreign
Ministry's Director of Security and Defense Affairs (and
Peru's coordinator for Hurricane Katrina assistance) of the
USG's acceptance at this time of Peru's offer to provide 1600
bandages, and of its continuing review of Peru's other offers
as part of our ongoing needs assessment (Ref A). Matute said
that he would contact the OFDA coordinator provided in Ref A,
but noted that while Peru's initial offer was for 1600
bandages (Ref C), it subsequently increased this offer to
2760 elastic bandages (4x5 yards) and 1850 elastic bandages
(6x5 yards) (Ref B). Polcouns recommended that Matute raise
this issue directly with the OFDA coordinator.
