REF: SECSTATE 159386

On December 4 we delivered the refel talking points to
Orlando Gomez, Director General for American Affairs; Mario
Barquero Baltodano, Acting Director General for International
Organization Affairs; and David McField, Director General for
Asia Africa and Oceania; all of the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs. Gomez and Barquero inquired as to any developments
or changes in the Middle East Peace process that had come out
of the recent Annapolis Conference and noted that the USG's
"unwillingness to communicate with Hamas, which is the
democratically-elected government of Palestine," would seem
to create a formidable obstacle to progress. We explained
that there were very well-known and public reasons for our
decision to work directly with President Abbas. We noted our
good relationship with Abbas and that he had met several
times with President Bush, including during the Annapolis
Conference.
