¶1. (C) During April 12 discussions on USG support for ECOWAS 
(septel) and plans for the future of peace support programs 
for Africa (reftel), ECOWAS Deputy Executive Secretary Chiekh 
Diarra told the visiting team that ECOWAS was working hard to 
reduce tensions in Liberia.  The Secretariat was trying to 
establish contact with the LURD to begin the process of 
dialogue between the LURD and GOL. 
 
 
¶2. (C) Diarra also noted that during the first week of April, 
ECOWAS had sent a team to Liberia to assess the impact of 
sanctions and GOL compliance.  ECOWAS believed that the GOL 
was making an effort to comply with the sanctions.  ECOWAS 
planned to argue for the sanctions regime to be revised and 
"eased" at the next UN meeting, Diarra said.
