E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PHUM PREL SU NL
SUBJECT: DUTCH ON SUDAN RESOLUTION AT UNCHR

REF: STATE 81843

(SBU) PolOff conveyed reftel points to Karen Burbach of the
Dutch MFA Human Rights Office on April 14. Burbach cited the
draft chairman's statement on Sudan proposed by the Africa
group on April 13, and called it too weak for the Netherlands
to accept. She noted that EU CHR members would be meeting
later on April 14 and would seek to insert certain benchmarks
into the Africa group text including: establishment of a
special rapporteur, condemnation of human rights violations
and the need for cooperation with the UN. Burbach said that,
at this stage, the GONL supported trying to amend the draft
chairman's statement because it thought it unlikely that a
Sudan resolution would pass.
