SUBJECT: BRAZIL: ICAO DEMARCHE ON MONTREAL CONVENTION AMENDMENT
DELIVERED

REF: SECSTATE 149106

SENSITIVE BUT UNCLASSIFIED--PLEASE PROTECT ACCORDINGLY

1. (SBU) Econoff and Poloff delivered reftel demarche on Monday,
November 5 to Alexandre de Lima in the Division of Services,
Investments and Financial Affairs (DSF) at the Ministry of External
Relations (MRE), as a follow-up on the demarche points sent to him
on October 30. De Lima, who will be a delegate to upcoming USG-GOB
bilateral aviation discussions in early December, could not provide
a clear response to any of the points. He said that the GOB is
"still studying" the information and that he "can't say whether they
are ready to commit," but that he "doesn't think it will be that
difficult." He added that he would need to confer with experts at
Brazil's civil aviation authority, ANAC, as well as another division
of the MRE, and suggested a Tuesday, November 13 meeting to review
their findings, but would not commit to a time.

2. (SBU) De Lima did not appear to feel the issue was urgent,
noting that it would not be raised until later on in the month-long
ICAO session. He also mentioned that another division at the MRE
will be involved in the discussion: COCIT, which deals with illegal
trafficking issues. (Comment: in previous encounters, Post has
found COCIT to be sensitive about matters of security cooperation.
End Comment.)

3. (SBU) Post will follow up with any additional details as they
become available. (Comment: Brazil is currently undergoing a
complete shakeup of its civil aviation authority (septel). This
development may make additional information more difficult to
obtain. End Comment.)
