Viewing cable 10CAIRO310, EGYPTIAN RESPOND TO CITES COP DEMARCHE

If you are new to these pages, please read an introduction on the structure of a cable as well as how to discuss them with others. See also the FAQs

Understanding cables
Every cable message consists of three parts:
  • The top box shows each cables unique reference number, when and by whom it originally was sent, and what its initial classification was.
  • The middle box contains the header information that is associated with the cable. It includes information about the receiver(s) as well as a general subject.
  • The bottom box presents the body of the cable. The opening can contain a more specific subject, references to other cables (browse by origin to find them) or additional comment. This is followed by the main contents of the cable: a summary, a collection of specific topics and a comment section.
To understand the justification used for the classification of each cable, please use this WikiSource article as reference.

SUBJECT: EGYPTIAN RESPOND TO CITES COP DEMARCHE 
 
REF: 10 STATE 6668 (U) 

ESTH delivered reftel points to Ministry of Foreign Affairs Sustainable Development and Environmental Affairs First Secretary Mohamed Nasr on February 9. Nasr stated Egypt "leans favorably" towards the USG proposal to remove the bobcat (lynx rufus) from CITES Appendix II but noted a Ministry of Agriculture team of technical advisors is reviewing the text before officially announcing the government's position. He said an Egyptian delegation, likely headed by Dr. Nabil Mahmoud Sedkee - the Ministry of Agriculture's national zoos and wildlife preservation director, will attend the CITES COP 15 conference in Doha next month. The rest of the delegation is expected to be announced at the end of February. SCOBEY
