SUBJECT: FRANCE SUPPORTS MINUSTAH RENEWAL

REF: STATE 127801

1. (SBU) On September 17, poloff demarched Marianne
Peron-Doise, acting MFA desk officer for the United Nations
and International Organizations, concerning the UN
Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH). Peron-Doise
agreed with U.S. points and said that France supports an
extension of MINUSTAH. Peron-Doise specifically noted the
need to reinforce the police but not the military while
maintaining current force levels. France also understands
the need to secure China's support for the renewal of
MINUSTAH; however, Peron Doise noted it would be very
difficult to convince China to back the renewal of MINUSTAH.
France's financial support to Haiti is currently unclear.

Currently, Iran is the latest bogey conjured up by Washington to (a) justify its foreign policy interventions and (b) distract attention from its foreign policy failures.

Once upon a time, the Soviet Union was the nightmare threat for the entire Cold War era – and since then the US has cast the Taliban, al Qaeda, and Islamic State in the same demonic role. Iran is now the latest example…More
