1. (U) On July 26, POLOFF met with Orlando Gomez, Director
General of the America's Division at the Ministry of Foreign
Relations (MINREX) to deliver points as directed in REFTELs.
Gomez responded that while the Foreign Minister had recently
raised the issue of whether to attend UNGA with President
Ortega, no decisions had yet been made. Gomez added that
earlier this week, FM Santos had meet with UNSYG Ban Ki-moon
in New York and had presented Ban with a proposal regarding
how to reform development assistance. Gomez noted that
Nicaragua had been in touch with Spain and Brazil about the
possibility of a thematically-related event attended by
President Ortega, Brazilian President Lula and the Spanish
PM. Gomez said his office would provide additional details
about the GON delegation as they became available.

2. (U) COMMENT (for IO/T and S/CPR): Post notes that while
the GON has apparently only engaged in preliminary internal
discussion about a delegation to UNGA, if President Ortega
were to attend, First Lady Rosario Murillo would almost
certainly accompany him, though she would be unlikely to have
a schedule separate from that of the President.
