SUBJECT: FORUM FOR THE FUTURE:  MFA SATISFIED WITH CIVIL 
SOCIETY PARTICIPATION 
 
REF: STATE 49586 
 
Classified By: A/POL Colin Cleary.  Reasons:  1.4(B/D). 
 
1.  (SBU)  We shared reftel message with MFA Middle East 
Peace Process Section Chief Sergey Kozlov, who has 
coordinated participation by Russian civil society in the 
Forum for the Future.  Efforts to contact the civil society 
leaders who attended the Forum were not successful in advance 
of reftel's reporting deadline. 
 
2.  (C)  Kozlov told us that he was aware of dissatisfaction 
among non-Russian civil society participants about the lack 
of movement on reform priorities.  He was dismissive, arguing 
that it was unlikely that the Arab governments attending the 
Forum would adopt civil society recommendations wholesale; 
having government representatives even listen to civil 
society was an important first step.  Kozlov said that 
Russian participants -- the Russian Academy of Science's 
Institute for Asian and African Studies, the Arab-Russian 
Business Council, and the St. Andrew the First Called 
Foundation -- were pleased with the Amman Forum and looked 
forward to participating in future events. 
 
3.  (C)  Kozlov was worried that the Germans were lagging in 
their preparation for the next Forum meeting.  He noted that 
by this time last year, the Russians had already scheduled a 
preparatory committee meeting in May and had shared their 
planning broadly.  He asked that the U.S. press the Germans 
to move forward on event scheduling, because coming to a 
consensus on agendas was likely to prove difficult.
