SUBJECT: COSTA RICA MFA STATES NO OFFICIAL POSITION YET ON
ZIMBABWE ELECTION AFTERMATH

REF: A. STATE 70836
B. STATE 70882

1. (U) On July 2, we passed the U.S. draft resolution on
Zimbabwe, per reftels, to Deyanira Ramirez, MFA UN Officer.
She had not seen the text nor had heard it was coming. She
promised to review it and respond.

2. (SBU) We asked Ramirez whether Costa Rica had taken a
position on the Zimbabwe situation in the aftermath of the
election, and she said that no, the GOCR had not yet defined
its official position on what should happen next. She
offered, however, her personal opinion that the international
community has to react and cannot let this violation of the
people's will stand. Post will follow up and will inform
when/if we receive a more substantive response.
