1. This cable is from the U.S. Mission to the African Union
(USAU),

2. On October 24, 2007, USAU received Diplomatic Note from
the African Union responding to the USAU's note verbale
210/07 of September 7. The diplomatic note from the African
Union states that the AU is still in the process of
determining all the requirements and implications of the full
establishment of the Africa Standby Force (ASF), including
the C3IS requirements. It is, therefore, not in a position
to consider any offer or proposal of support to C3IS, or any
other component of the ASF, until a decision has been taken
by the Assembly of Heads of State and Government. The AU
note also refers to the request for support of communications
facilities to link AMISOM to the AU headquarters.


3. Full text of AU Diplomatic Note is as follows:
