SCENE-SETTER FOR THE APRIL 19-20 VISIT OF EUR PDAS KURT VOLKER
Created: 
13 Apr 2007
Summary: 
Volger was told that he would meet with Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Political Director Rory Montgomery who suggested they talk about (among other things) Shannon/Bilateral Military Cooperation. Notes that privately the DFA has asked for maximum US government vigilance against incidents at Shannon that could stoke "public sensitivities" - ie. widespread opposition to US military use of Shannon.
