Ministry of Foreign Affairs on August 26, and the Charge
d'Affaires followed up on August 28 with Minister of State
for International Affairs Henry Okello Oryem. Minister Oryem
thanked us and said he would convey to President Museveni the
importance of the five minute time limit. Given President
Museveni's personal interest in nuclear nonproliferation and
disarmament, we believe it highly likely that he will attend.
