SUBJECT: SOMALI PIRACY UN RESOLUTION RAISED WITH CZECHS

REF: STATE 47531

Embassy officials discussed demarche request related to the
draft UN Security Council resolution on Somali Piracy with
Czech UN Department official Rene Dlabal on May 7. As the
Czechs are rarely called upon to address issues linked to the
UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, Dlabal welcomed our
non-paper on the subject and indicated that he would be back
in touch if anyone in his section had additional questions.
