¶1.  (C) During an October 9 conversation on Cote d'Voire 
(REF A), Ambassador Jeter reminded ECOWAS ExecSec Chambas 
of our request for a public statement clarifying ECOWAS' 
position on allegations in the draft military assessment 
team's report on Liberia.  More specifically, he asked 
ECOWAS to confirm publicly that it did not endorse the 
false rumors contained in the draft report alleging U.S. 
and UK support to the LURD (REF B). Chambas thanked 
Ambassador Jeter for the reminder and said he still planned 
to attend to our request.
