APCSS FOR GENERAL STACKPOLE FROM BANGKOK DCM ARVIZU

SUBJECT: NOTIFYING BANGKOK ABOUT APCSS SEMINARS AND

TRAINING COURSES

 

¶1. (U) General Stackpole,

 

As you know, our Mission in Bangkok is a long-standing

supporter of the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies.

The courses you have organized are among the best of their

type in the world. Thai alumni return better informed about

vital issues of mutual concern and better prepared to work

with American counterparts. We will continue to work with

your staff to identify qualified military and civilian

candidates who will benefit from the excellent training APCSS

provides and who will make candid contributions to your

courses.

 

¶2. (U) Recently, however, we have had a few problems

coordinating responsibilities among the various U.S. military

and civilian offices in Bangkok with a stake in APCSS courses

and seminars. At times, the confusion stemmed from informal

emails from APCSS alerting either JUSMAGTHAI or DAO Bangkok

about upcoming courses. In order to avoid these problems, I

ask that future notifications of courses or seminars be made

via front channel cable to Embassy Bangkok. Doing so will

insure that the Ambassador and I determine which Embassy

office would be best able to provide a participant for an

APCSS seminar or be assigned primary responsibility for

selecting Thai candidates to attend an APCSS course. I

assure you that we will be responsive and more quickly and

effectively able to support your work if we receive future

notifications front channel.

 

¶3. (U) Sincerely yours,

 

Alexander A. Arvizu

Deputy Chief of Mission

U.S. Embassy, Bangkok
