SUBJECT: MOROCCO RESPONSE - WHO IGWG 5-10 NOVEMBER

REF: STATE 144926

1. (SBU) On October 25, econoff delivered points conveyed in
reftel to Sellam Berrada, Chief of Staff for International
Organizations at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Berrada
was aware of the upcoming Intergovernmental Working Group
(IGWG) meeting in Geneva November 5-10, but appeared
completely unacquainted with the issues raised. He was
noncommittal in his remarks, commenting only that the points
conveyed involved other ministries. Berrada closed the
meeting by pledging to share the information provided with
the appropriate Moroccan officials and to inform us of any
substantive response.

2. (SBU) Comment: Morocco's new cabinet was just sworn-in on
October 15, with all ministries experiencing differing levels
of reorganization. We doubt the GOM will be able to
formulate a substantive response before the IGWG convenes on
November 5. End Comment.
