REF: STATE 101170

1. (SBU) In response to reftel query concerning attendance of
high-level officials at the 62nd session of the United
Nationa General Assembly (UNGA) in New York in late September
and early October, contacts at the Indonesian Department of
Foreign Affairs (DEPLU) have told us there are tentative
plans for Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to
attend the UNGA September 23 and 24. His attendance would
occur in connection with a high-level meeting at that time on
the margins of the UNGA in preparation for the 13th Council
of Parties on climate change, scheduled to be held in Bali,
Indonesia, in December. Should President Yudhoyono not
attend the climate-change meeting, contacts said, he would
likely be represented by Indonesian State Minister for the
Environment Rachmat Nadi Witoelar Kartaadipoetra (Rachmat
Witoelar being the operative name).

2. (SBU) DEPLU contacts confirmed that Indonesian Foreign
Minister Hasan Wirajuda would also likely attend the UNGA,
either with President Yudhoyono or as Indonesia's senior
official.

3. (SBU) DEPLU contacts hope to be able to provide more
detailed information and possibly additional names before
August 1.
