(SBU) Pol/Econ Chief delivered reftel demarche to Ministry
of Foreign Affairs Africa Director Augustin Rutikara on
December 22. Rutikara signaled Rwanda's continued support
for the firm AU approach toward the military junta in
Mauritania, saying that "no recognition" was the proper
approach, and that hasty elections would benefit only the
military leaders. Sanctions were worth considering, he said,
as the international community sought to pressure the
military regime.
