SUBJECT: POLISH MFA WORKING WITH FINANCE MINISTRY ON
COMMITMENT TO GEORGIA DONORS CONFERENCE

REF: STATE 109212

(U) EmbOffs delivered Ref A demarche October 14 regarding
next week's Georgia donors conference in Brussels to Tomasz
Orlowski, Georgia desk officer at the Polish MFA. Orlowski
reiterated, per Ref B, that Foreign Minister Radoslaw
Sikorski is still working with the Finance Ministry to
determine whether the budget would allow Poland to make a
donation, but no final decisions have been made concerning a
possible pledge by the GOP at next week's donors conference.
However, Jerzy Rohozinski of the MFA's Development
Cooperation Department told us October 17 that Poland planned
to double financial resources devoted to assistance for
Georgia compared to current levels. Poland's assistance
activities will be conducted within the framework of the
overall Polish Foreign Assistance Program, which will be
implemented on a competitive basis by government agencies and
nongovernmental organizations.
