SUBJECT: 63RD UNGA/FIRST COMMITTEE: INDONESIAN POSITION ON
OCTOBER 30 VOTE

REF: SECSTATE 114403

1. (U) This message is Sensitive but Unclassified--Please
handle accordingly.

2. (SBU) SUMMARY: An official in the Indonesian Department
of Foreign Affairs indicated possible GOI support for the
U.S.-backed resolution re "compliance with non-proliferation"
in the October 30 vote in the First Committee. Mission
underscored the importance of Indonesian support. END
SUMMARY.

3. (SBU) On October 30, PolMilOff conveyed USG
Indonesia-specific talking points and reftel text to Andy
Rachmianto, Deputy Director for International Security and
Disarmament at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DEPLU).
PolMilOff noted that Indonesia had abstained in the vote on
the 2005 resolution, underscored the importance of the
resolution for advancing compliance, and emphasized recent
efforts to find compromise language acceptable to Indonesia.

4. (SBU) Rachmianto expressed appreciation for the U.S.
discussion. He noted he had sent DEPLU's instructions to
Indonesian representative Desra Percaya in New York the
previous week and said the Indonesian and U.S. positions had
become somewhat closer. Without explicitly promising
Indonesian support for the U.S.-backed resolution, he said
the Indonesian support could be exchanged for U.S. support on
the resolution that Indonesia planned to introduce in 2009
regarding the Southeast Asian Nuclear Weapons-Free Zone
(SEANWFZ). PolMilOff pressed but Rachmianto declined to
confirm explicitly whether Indonesia would vote for the
proposal.
