SUBJECT: WESTERWELLE WILL NOT ATTEND LONDON CONFERENCE ON
YEMEN

REF: STATE 6940

1. (SBU) Poloff met with MFA Desk Officer responsible for
Yemen Gudrun Masloch January 26 to provide reftel points and
discuss Germany's approach to Yemen. Gudrun said that due to
Bundestag meetings, Foreign Minister Westerwelle will not
attend the January 27 London Conference on Yemen, but will
send MFA State Minister Werner Hoyer and MFA Near East
assistant secretary equivalent Andreas Michaelis. Masloch
(only one week in her position, coming from Riga) said that
reftel talking points are fairly general, but appear to track
German thinking. She said she would confer with colleagues
and notify us of any substantive responses to the points.
Masloch asked whether Yemen had indicated it would commit to
any IMF programs. Masloch also provided Poloff with an MFA
non paper on Yemen which post will email to NEA/ARP
separately.
