TAGS: KWBG PGOV PREL UNSC LY
SUBJECT: LIBYA: DEMARCHE DELIVERED ON ANNAPOLIS PROCESS UNSCR

REF: STATE 130963

1. (SBU) CDA delivered reftel demarche to Dr. Ahmed Fituri, MFA
Secretary for the Americas (A/S-equivalent) on December 14,
encouraging a 'yes' vote and stressing that any amendments to
the current draft resolution language would likely prevent it
from being passed. Fituri undertook to pass reftel points to
Foreign Minister Shalgham (who was unavailable to meet) as a
direct message from Secretary Rice, and called later to say that
he had done so. He made a point of noting Muammar al-Qadhafi's
advocacy of a one state ("Isratine") solution, but said the GOL
had not yet decided its position on the Annapolis process UNSCR.
