immediately relay the points to her superiors regarding no-action
motions, country-specific resolutions and U.S. opposition to the
promotion of "defamation of religions." She noted that the GVN is
very familiar with the U.S. positions relating to the Third
Committee and human rights. She said that the MFA would take the
