3. (SBU) Appreciative of the Secretary's letter,
Aarland-Nanhu indicated that the MFA had already received a
read-out of "recent explanation efforts in Brazil" regarding
the U.S.-Colombia bilateral Defense Cooperation Agreement
(DCA). She said the reasons provided in the letter matched
the current GOS understanding of DCA, and helped clarify
several concerns she knew the Brazilians had, implying a more
comfortable GOS position as well, though without offering a
definitive GOS reaction.
