talking points to Gustavo Argueta, MFA Official in Charge of

excellent relations with Israel, and this week he had met
with Mattanya Cohen, Israel's Ambassador to El Salvador, to
receive a document outlining Israel's plan for this year's
UNGA and to discuss UN issues.

through appropriate channels and would be open to further
discussion on specific resolutions.
