talking points to Gustavo Argueta, MFA Official in Charge of 
UN and Multilateral Fora.  Argueta acknowledged the US

Jerusalem to Tel Aviv as an example of this new approach.

strengthening and expanding its relations with several Arab 
countries.  He added that El Salvador continued to have 
excellent relations with Israel, and this week he had met 
with Mattanya Cohen, Israel's Ambassador to El Salvador, to 
receive a document outlining Israel's plan for this year's 
UNGA and to discuss UN issues.

through appropriate channels and would be open to further 
discussion on specific resolutions.
