SUBJECT: DEMARCHE DELIVERED: BUILDING INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT
FOR DEMOCRACY IN ZIMBABWE

REF: A. STATE 33284

B. STATE 34009

(SBU) We delivered reftel demarches on March 20 to the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs Multilateral Affairs Bureau,
Principal Assistant Secretary for Human Rights, Ms. Astanah
Banu Shri Abdul Aziz. Ms. Astanah assured us the Government
of Malaysia was watching the developments in Zimbabwe. She
commented that, consistent with Malaysia's general practice
of non-interference, it was unlikely the GOM would issue a
statement condemning Zimbabwe's actions, and even less likely
that Malaysia would make any effort to raise the issue before
the UN Human Rights Council.
