E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: EUN PHUM PREL PGOV EC
SUBJECT: ECUADORIAN VIEW ON PRISONER OF CONSCIENCE
DECLARATION

REF: STATE 40380

1. (SBU) Poloff delivered demarche on the United States -
European Union declaration on Prisoners of Conscience
(reftel) and presented draft declaration language to Ministry
of Foreign Affairs Director General for Human Rights Augusto
Saa April 24. Saa said that the Ministry was previously
unaware of the draft and he would therefore have to consult
the GOE mission in New York. However, he added that on first
glance, the notion of such a declaration was "consistent
with the principles of human rights which guide Ecuadorian
foreign policy." Saa also noted that the co-sponsorship of
the resolution by the European Union would make adoption
easier. Saa said he would inform post of the GOE's final
position on the resolution in due course.
