SUBJECT: DEMARCHE TO INDONESIA: HRC OCCUPIED TERRITORIES
MANDATE

REF: STATE 35404 (EXTENSION OF OCCUPIED TERRITORIES
MANDATE)

1. (U) On March 21, met with Heru Santoso and Dicky Yunus of
the Indonesian Department of Foreign Affairs' Human Rights
Directorate to urge that the Human Rights Council not take up
the question of the Special Rapporteur on the Occupied
Palestinian Territories outside the context of the Mandate
Review Working Group. Drawing on reftel, we argued that such
a step would undermine the objectivity and non-selectivity of
the Human Rights Council and create a double standard.
Santoso and Yunus took our points on board, but stated
frankly that Indonesia would not break with any OIC consensus
on this issue.
