1. (SBU) On September 5, Embassy received official correspondence
from Government of Indonesia (GOI) Minister of Environment Rachmat
Witoelar addressed to Under Secretary of State for Democracy and
Global Affairs Paula Dobriansky. The letter invites U/S Dobriansky
to informal ministerial consultations in Bogor, Indonesia, on 24 and
25 October 2007. The consultations are to prepare for the
Thirteenth Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC in Bali this
December. The GOI and Norway (the co-host) are still working on the
logistical details. Embassy will convey that information as soon as
it is available, and advises that attendees request hotel
reservations immediately thereafter because of the limited number of
rooms.

Jakarta, August 27 2007

Subject: Ministerial Meeting Pre UNFCCC

Washington
USA.

Dear Ms. Dobriansky,

As President-designate of the thirteenth session of the Conference
of the Parties to the UNFCCC and the third session of the Conference
of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto
Protocol, it is my honour to invite you to the informal ministerial
consultations to be held in Bogor, Indonesia on 24 and
25 October 2007.

Around the world, debates on climate change are moving with a new
sense of urgency and openness. This year has seen an unprecedented
number of discussions at the highest levels, which have resulted in
a many powerful political signals. The informal ministerial
consultations in Bogor will seek to build on this momentum and seek
to prepare the ground for successful outcomes at the Bali Conference
in December 2007.

The consultations will start with an informal dinner on the evening
of the 23 October to welcome arriving ministers. Ministers would
then engage in one and a half days of discussion on 24 and 2S
October 2007. On 25 October, the meeting would conclude with a lunch
in time to allow ministers to make departing flights later in the
afternoon and evening.

The character of the Bogor consultations will be informal in order
to ensure a frank and useful exchange of views on the key issues for
Bali. I look forward to welcoming you to this important meeting and
count on your support to making the Bali Conference a success.

Yours sincerely,
Rachmat Witoelar
