EAP Rep: Kaye Lee
Lynn Nelson

Outstanding Issues:

Japan - Offer of teams - see 2300 entry below.

Korea - State cable - confinn it goes out and list number.

EAP Log:

2300 Call from Brett Blackshaw in Tokyo and email looking for confinnation from NORTHCOM that they are
aware of Japanese offers of relief teams. Need to find out if they know about offers and if decision has been made
on acceptance. Acceptance is politically important to the GOJ. Blackshaw noted that Brig. General Allen may also
be involved in this decision. Have reached out to NORTCOM - not to Allen yet.

2245 Received OK to accept 10 tons of tarps, diapers, 5 tons of cleaning' supplies from ROK. Conveyed to post
via cable STATE XXX. Other assistance declined at this time. Received phone call from Dan Larsen in Seoul and
oonveyedinfo. '

18:00 Received diplomatic note from Australia with instructions on human remains. The task force is currently
clearing ga circular that will go to all diplomatic missions regarding the identifiCation and disposition of remains,
which should serve to answer the Australian requests in the dipnote. Kaye faxed the dipnoet to the Austrialia
Desk for their info. '

17:72 Spoke with Scott Marciel. Confirmed Thailand is bringing blankets and rice on flight to Little Rock. Advised
Scott to contact OFDA RMC (703-526-2210) to obtain contact at Little Rock AFB to arrange for Thai officials to
arrive at base in advance of the flight. '

17:30Confinned with Kevin Olybrish that the Cambodia $20,000 donation was presented to Embassy Phnom
Penh.
-Acceptance cable and instructions sent. STATE 166898

17:25 Confinned with Wendell Albright that Japan donations from Florida are currently at $300,000. Any future
donations will require an additional cable accepting donations and thanking Japan.

1700 Kaye spoke with Lynette Chang from Singapore Embassy (202-465-3380) who clarified that Singapore had
donated the use of 4 helicopters and a total of 41 personnel in the Katrina affected area. The helicopters and
personnel had been stationed in Texas at a National guard facility for long-term training. All four helicopters are
presently deployed and in use, according to Chang. She said that the first three helicopters arrived on 9/1 and the
fourth arrived on 9/4. She asked that press info be corrected. We've updated the matrix to reflect the correct info
(4 vs 3.)

1630 passed to Malaysia desk - matt cenzer-contact info for Julie reynes, ARC reynesj@us8;redcross.org. Matt
talked to Julie reynes and put her in contact with the Malaysian embassy. Malaysian fin hamid will be in DC on

allowed access. Note from Amba Sullivan - Consular access: we ran into a new problem thoday with a Japanese
consular visit to NO in which we had notified state police, but nat't guard and NOPD blocked their entry, indicating
a heightened level of local authority/capacity. After some delay DS was able to facilitate' entry.

EAP Rep: Alex Ave-Lallemant
Michael Goldman

Outstanding Issues:

Thailand
-Rice has been given blanket clearance by USDA. Okay to bring it in, as long as rice doesn't leave PM's plane
before arriving at Little Rock 9/11. (For information on flight and clearance, see unclass email of 2:11)
-Now, trying to find POC at Little Rock AFB to act as liaison with Thai officials who will be there betorehand
-Melanie Higgins (7-0036) is Thailand Desk Officer.

Republic of Korea
-A much more frustrating situation.
-Still no word from OFDA/ FEMA on shipment.
-Embassy Seoul worries about effect on bilateral relationship (see seoul 4091). With EAP/K's help, we've drafted
a paragraph for Task Force Chair to include in memo for S conversation with DHS Secretary Chertoff. (See below
for text.)

Japan
-Most goods in storage in FL are being transferred to American Red Cross.
- The Japanese have also gotten clearance from FEMA to give generators, also in FL, to the State of Mississippi.
-The only things remaining in storage are water supplies. '
-No word yet on offer of JDF epidemic control personnel.
-A Japanese diplomat trying to enter New Orleans has been stopped by Nat. Guard (see below).

Singapore
-Correction needed to press reports re: donated helicopters.

Malaysia
~EAP/J (Wendell Albright) believes they have a better contact at the American Red Cross. If he is able to come
up with some names, please pass them on to Malaysia Desk Officer.

1449
Call from Joe Bookbinder of State's Foreign Press Center (202-504-6554) concerning a call from the Singapore
Press Attache, Lynette Chang ~ ~ Ms. Chang wants to correct an error in our press release detailing B(j
foreign offers of assistance. Accormng to MS. hang, Singapore has offered four helicopters, not three.

1436
Received following from EAPIK, which I gave to Task Force Coordinator for inclusion in memo to S for her
conversation with Chertoff:

The South Korean government, stung by accusations late last year that it had responded slowly to the
Tsunami, has been touting its rapid response. with full engagement by the Prime Minister, to the .
devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina. They have offered $30m in assistance, inclUding 100 tons of
in-kind assistance, to be delivered rapidly. Unfortunately, as we have postponed their in-kind assistance
and the Korean public has witnessed neighboring countries delivering assistance (not entirely accurate or
fair), the public perception is growing again that the government has managed confirm Korea's weak self-
image and is relegated to being a second-tier ally of the U.S. The Korean in-kind offer is based directly on
our original guidance of what was needed and they are prepared to deliver it on Sep. 15 to Little Rock
AFB. The Desk and Embassy Seoul will endeavor to strip out the food portion in the Korean offer, if
FEMA can be persuaded to accept the rest of the material. The Koreans need a clear indication that it will
be accepted both to plan and to allow the government to fulfill its commitment to assist the U.S. in time of
need. The Secretary will meet with FM Ban on Sep 16 in New York on the margins of UNGA.

1422
Called K desk, asked them to put together a one-paragraph statement, which we can insert in briefing to S, for her
conversation with Chertoff. K said they would be happy to provide.

1405
Received call from Japanese consular officer who is trying to get access to New Orleans. LA national guard is
apparently not permitting him to enter, despite receiving authorization from Amb. Sullivan. I asked the official if he
had also coordinated with the LA'State Police, but was cut off before he could answer. He had not given his
name.

1325
Called Ms. Lester back with information about the Thai team that is traveling with the PM's plane (see below). She
then asked how future offers of forensic assistance should be handled. After speaking with Task Force head, I
told Ms. Lester that while no guidance has been sent to our embassies, we are asking that such offers be put on
hold, for now. Future offers of forensic assistance from foreign governments can be addressed to the Task Force,
or - if they want something more formal- to S and through her staff, to us.

1312
Took call from Victoria Lester of Interpol ~ tellI
Thai forensics team will be traveling to the U.S. Ms. tester epressec con: ~out reports she has heard that a
that other such offers have been
Bl
turned down. Told her I would look into it and call her back.

1300
Confirmed that Thai rice has received blanket clearance by USDA to enter U.S. on PM plane, provided that the
rice does not leave the plane before it arrives in Little Rock on 9/11. Remaining problem: we need POC at Little
Rock AFB, so Thai officials can help meet plane.

1130
Spoke with OFDA rep re: Thai and Korean offer. No word from FEMA. They are still "considering" the offers,
according to he OFDA rep, but don't really want such in-kind contributions. Related the news to an
understandably frustrated Andrew Hyde at the Korea Desk. Things look better for the Thai rice offer, which likely
will go through. The sticking point now, according to PM rep, is that the Thais would like two officials to go to Little
Rock AFB to be there for receipt of shipment, but no-word who the POC would be. Have contacted North Com for
more information.

1020
Took call from Ms. Haznah at Malaysian Embassy who offered $1million to Am Red Cross from Malaysia. Wanted
to have FM present at ceremony when he is here on Sept 25 - 26. .

0930 I
Spoke to Wendell Albright (EAP/J) who pointed out a new offer of assistance from the Japanese Defense Force
(epidemic prevention). Updated matrix to reflect this information.

0830
Spoke to OFDA rep re: Korean Offer. FEMA still considering the issue.

David,

Phnom Penh 1539 (dated September 13) states that the RGC donation was credited per
instructions. This donation should be marked as "received." Per taksing, we sent a
response up to the Line on September 14.

In addition to the RGC contribution, the King (Narodom Sihamoni) presented $20,000 in cash
(Phnom Penh 1539). I will clarify with post whether this amount has now been deposited.
I have not yet seen a tasker for a response on this offer.

All;

The Task Force has asked us for an update on USG response to Hurricane Katrina offers that
are still pending or not required. Attached please find a list of all responses to EAP
countries on offers of Hurricane Katrina assistance. I've searched CX and come up with
this info, but it may not be complete. I'm asking your assistance to please fili in any
responses you may have cleared on or seen outgoing to Posts for your countries on this
list by 1500 today. If you haven't seen anything else or feel a response is NOT warranted
to an offer, please let me know.

Thanks as always.
