TAGS: PREL EAID ETRD ECON AMGT US FR
SUBJECT: NO FRENCH COMMERCIAL SOURCES OF VEGETARIAN MRES

REF: STATE 175147

Per ref request, we checked with French MFA and MOD
contacts, but preliminary information indicates that French
MREs pose two problems: they are not produced by commercial
sources, and they are generally not vegetarian. The MFA
promised to investigate the matter further, and we will
relay any information we get.
