E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PREL KPAL IS JO UNSC
SUBJECT: DEMARCHE ON CONSOLIDATED UNRWA RESOLUTION

REF: STATE 303844

(SBU) Refcoord delivered ref demarche to GOJ Department of
Palestinian Affairs Director General Abdulkarim Abulhaija on
October 30, leaving the draft resolution as a nonpaper. (The
GOJ, through the Department of Palestinian Affairs, plays an
active leadership role among UNRWA host governments and in
Arab League meetings on refugee issues.) Refcoord emphasized
that a consolidated UNRWA resolution would help turn the
international community's attention away from difficult
political issues back to UNRWA's core humanitarian mandate,
thereby protecting donors' ability to continue strong
financial support for the agency. Noting that the GOJ shares
U.S. concerns about depoliticizing UNRWA issues, Abulhaija
promised to review the resolution and encourage the Jordanian
mission in New York to cooperate with the U.S. mission on the
draft resolution.
