SUBJECT: HAITI NONCOMMITTAL ON ANTI-ISRAEL UNGA RESOLUTIONS

REF: A. STATE 123081
B. STATE 123493

1. Poloff raised ref A points regarding resolutions on Israel
debated in the UN General Assembly (UNGA) each fall with
Jacques Renand Cherduville, Political Director of the Haitian
Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on November 21. (Note: Haiti
voted for the three U.S.-opposed resolutions referenced in
the demarche last year. End note.) Cherduville said he
could not guarantee the Haitian delegation would vote against
the three resolutions concerning anti-Israel UN bodies, and
added that Haiti's votes on the resolutions would be
determined by the Minister of Foreign Affairs in consultation
with the President and Prime Minister. He promised to relay
USG concerns regarding the resolutions to the Minister and to
the Haitian delegation in New York.

2. Poloff also thanked Cherduville for Haiti's co-sponsorship
of the resolution on compliance (ref B) in UNGA's First
Committee this year.
