REF: STATE 119005
1. (SBU) Poloff delivered ref demarche to Ministry of Foreign
Affairs (MOFA) Mexico, Central America and Caribbean Division
Principal Deputy Director Noritsugu Takahashi on November 19.
Takahashi said MOFA has not made a final decision on the
assistance request. MOFA is curious whether or not the U.S.
Government sent a demarche to any other countries, and also
expressed interest in the degree to which the U.S.-based
election observers will be funded by the U.S. Government.
2. (SBU) Takahashi said MOFA is sending a cable to the
Japanese embassy in Washington, D.C. instructing them to
convey those questions.
