UNCLAS GUATEMALA 002880

SIPDIS

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PREL KPAL IS GT UNGA
SUBJECT: GUATEMALA ON MIDDLE EAST RESOLUTIONS AT THE UNGA

REF: A. STATE 321874

B. STATE 306875
C. STATE 305553

Per ref A instructions, the Ambassador spoke with Foreign
Minister Edgar Gutierrez on November 10. Gutierrez, who was
enjoying a local holiday in the wake of national elections
here yesterday, was unaware of the details of our proposals
but promised he would not wait until tomorrow to contact his
staff. The text of Secretary Powell's letter to Gutierrez on
this topic (ref B) was delivered via diplomatic note to the
Foreign Ministry on Friday, November 7. PolOff had earlier
discussed ref C points with acting Director for Multilateral
Affairs, Luis Carranza, on November 6. That discussion led
us to believe that Guatemala was open to the idea of
consolidating some of the resolutions and possibly to at
least abstain on others.
