handle accordingly.

2. (SBU) Poloff delivered reftel demarche to Diana Emilla,
Deputy Director for Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs at
the Department of Foreign Affairs (DEPLU), underscoring that
Indonesia--as East Asia's largest democracy and a key player
in ASEAN--should support the draft resolution condemning rape
as an instrument of state policy. Poloff also urged
Indonesia to cosponsor the resolution.

3. (SBU) Emilla responded that Indonesia supported the draft
resolution, but the GOI had not yet decided whether it would
be a cosponsor. She promised to inform Mission if Indonesia
decided to cosponsor the resolution, but thought that the
decision to do so or not would be made in New York as the
senior GOI officials responsible for this type of issue were
already there for UN meetings.
