REF: SECSTATE 211164

1. (SBU) On November 26, Econchief briefed MFA A/US for
International Cooperation Mohammed Abduljaleel about the
Kabul Conference. Abduljaleel suggested that Econchief also
brief MFA A/US for Political Affairs Tariq Al-Haidan as the
person responsible for the conference. On November 28,
Econchief discussed the Kabul Conference with Al-Haidan, who
said that he had just finished a meeting with the Afghan
Ambassador on the conference. Al-Haidan said that the UAE
viewed regional economic cooperation as important and wanted
to cooperate with its friends. He noted that Afghanistan was
facing a "new history." It was rebuilding its
infrastructure, finishing schools, and hopefully was
beginning to benefit from the results. Al-Haidan commented
that the UAE and Afghanistan already were cooperating
economically. He explained that the large Afghan population
in the UAE ensured that trade relations between the two
countries were strong, adding that the efficient UAE port and
airport system also made it attractive to Afghan traders.

2. (SBU) Al-Haidan said that the MFA had not yet decided who
would represent the UAEG at the conference, adding that they
had asked the offices of Deputy PM/Minstate for Foreign
Affairs Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al-Nahyan and Foreign
Minister Rashid Abdulla Al-Noaimi for a decision. He
promised to contact Econchief when he developed further
information.
