SUBJECT: SLOVAKIA WILL NOT ACT ON VENEZUELAN NGO LAW

REF: STATE 97547

(SBU) We delivered reftel points on Venezuela's proposed
legislative restrictions on NGOs to Miriam Cengelova of the
MFAs Fifth Territorial Department (Americas) on June 15.
Cengelova said that since Slovakia doesn't have an Embassy in
Venezuela, they could not communicate any message to the
government there. Poloff suggested Slovakia might send a
message through a nearby Embassy, or encourage the EU as a
whole to issue a statement. Cengelova said that she really
doesn't think it is that important an issue for Slovakia, and
did not seem willing to take any action based on our message.
