¶1. (C) Charge d' Affaires, a.i. Bullen spoke with and 
presented Ref A demarche to Deputy Minister of Foreign 
Affairs Manuel Trullols on July 2.  Trullols took the 
Charge's comments on board, stated he will raise the issue 
with FM Morales when he returns to the country, and remained 
non-committal about recognizing Kosovo.  In a response to the 
Ambassador on February 25, the FM stated it would be 
problematic for the Dominican Republic to act without Rio 
Group Summit consensus (Ref B).  The country hosted the 
Summit in March but it is unclear whether the Rio Group 
members broached the issue of Kosovo independence. 
 
¶2. (C) Post will report any subsequent response from the MFA.
