3. Comment: When CDA Powers queried Amb. Sharfi concerning the
reference to "negative reports about Dyncorp," Amb. Sharfi stated
that he could not state more than that the Government has collected
information about Dyncorp. Amb. Sharfi went on to state that the US
Embassy should not become further involved in this issue, for it is
one to be addressed solely between AMIS (the AU) and the Sudanese
authorities. He concluded that US efforts to assist in this matter
were having just the opposite effect, and resulting in further
delays. Amb. Sharfi repeated that the AU should be raising such
issues and not the USG.
