¶1. The Ambassador spoke with Foreign Minister Fernando Araujo 
on February 14, and delivered all points in reftel A.  Araujo 
said the GOC was considering the U.S. request, and indicated 
the GOC would "likely" respond favorably.  Vice-Foreign 
Minister Camilo Reyes subsequently confirmed that the Foreign 
Ministry supported recognition of Kosovo at the "opportune 
moment," but said the MFA needed to consult with President 
Uribe.  He does not anticipate that President Uribe will 
object. We will continue to press MFA officials for 
confirmation of the GOC position.
