DEMARCHE

REF: STATE 106075

1. Poloff delivered reftel demarche on July 26 to Natalie
Morro in the MFA Archives Office and Claude Chavance in MFA
Legal Affairs. Both interlocutors confirmed that the GoF did
not anticipate any major obstacles to the ratification of the
amendments. They noted the ratification of the text by the
French Parliament would add a great deal of weight to the
Bonn Accord's legal stature in France, as it will be the
first time the Accords will go before Parliament. Both
Chavance and Morro were enthusiastic about the result and
confident of quick passage.

2. The text will first be presented to the Council of State,
which will then send it on to Parliament for ratification.
Parliament convenes in October/November 2006, but it is
possible (for bureaucratic reasons) that the text would not
be ready for ratification until the 2007 spring session. The
MFA promised to follow the case closely and advise post of
any unforeseen problems.
