1. (SBU) PolOff on June 18 delivered to MFA ref b points
urging Chinese support for consensus adoption of a
U.S.-drafted UNSC resolution on sexual violence in situations
of armed conflict and China's agreement to withdraw from
suggested amendments that would weaken key elements of that
resolution. MFA International Organizations and Conferences
Department UN Division Deputy Director Shen Yinyin said
China's concerns on the issues raised in the points are "well
known." While she noted that the United States and China
share a common general position on the issue of sexual
violence in armed conflict, she did not offer any substantive
response to our request that China withdraw its opposition to
the relevant points. Shen said only that she would coordinate
with the Chinese UN Mission to communicate our concerns.
