1. (SBU) Post can not report at this time if the Head of
State (HOS) or Head of Government (HOG) will attend UNGA, or
if the HOS/HOG will be in New York on September 24. On July
23, Post sent a diplomatic note requesting information on the
Tunisian delegation to the 62nd UNGA meetings. On July 25,
Ambassador followed up with MFA Chief of Staff Hatem Atallah.
Atallah said that he had seen Post's diplomatic note, but
that the GOT had not yet decided who will attend UNGA.

2. (SBU) Comment: The GOT usually decides and announces who
will attend only days before UNGA. Traditionally, it is the
Tunisian Foreign Minister that attends UNGA. Given that, it
is unlikely that the spouse of the GOT's HOS/HOG would be in
New York for an event with Mrs. Bush. Post will continue to
press for a response and report any additional information
septel. End Comment.
