SUBJECT: DEMARCHE DELIVERED: UNSC SOMALIA PIRACY RESOLUTION

REF: STATE 130496

(SBU) On December 15, the Ambassador delivered reftel points to Vice
Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh, urging Vietnam to support a new
UNSCR on Somali piracy at the UNSC Ministerial December 16. VFM
Minh acknowledged that robust action was necessary to combat piracy,
but said that Vietnam's UN Mission had reservations about operative
paragraph four, which it would relate directly in discussions in New
York. Before Vietnam comes to a position on the proposed new
resolution, it would weigh heavily the briefing from Somalia's
Foreign Minister on December 16.
