TAGS: PARM PREL IAEA EUN FI
SUBJECT: FINNISH RESPONSE: IAEA GENERAL CONFERENCE/MIDDLE
EAST: URGING SUPPORT FOR CONSENSUS PACKAGE ON MIDDLE EAST
RESOLUTION

REF: SECSTATE 119672

(SBU) PolChief delivered subject demarche to Tarja
Pesamaa, A/Director of the Finnish MFA's Unit for Arms
Control, Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Sept. 6. Noting
that Finland supported a "no action" outcome when this
issue came up during last year's IAEA GC, Pesamaa said that
Finland's goal was to avoid having "purely political" issues
(such as an Israel-specific agenda item) derail or distract
from the GC's substantive business, and that the GOF could
be counted on to work with serious partners to support any
reasonable resolution to achieve that goal.
