2009 to Waldemar Coutts, Deputy Director, and Mauricio Hurtado,
Counselor, at Chile's Ministry of Foreign Affairs Office of
Environment, Antarctic, and Maritime Affairs (MFA/DIMA). Hurtado

Chile's response. He promised to report any comments within two

and USG contacts whom Chile could contact in Egypt for the Montreal
