E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PREL KPAL IS AM UNGA
SUBJECT: UNGA: ARMENIANS "NOT READY TO COMMIT" ON
PALESTINIAN RESOLUTION

REF: STATE 92528

(U) Sensitive But Unclassified. Please treat
accordingly.

(SBU) We delivered demarche and talking points on the
Palestinian draft General Assembly resolution regarding
the Observer Mission's representation to MFA
International Organizations Department Head Levon
Mkrtumyan April 27 per reftel instructions. Mkrtumyan
said that Armenia was "not ready to commit" regarding
the resolution because Armenian FM Oskanian had not yet
discussed the issue with Armenia's mission in New York.
Mkrtumyan noted, however, that the GOAM felt it had
"cooperated and voted well with Washington" during
recent UNCHR meetings in Geneva on the Cuba and China
resolutions. He hinted that, given GOAM cooperation on
these votes, the GOAM did not feel a great deal of
pressure to side with the USG on this issue. He said,
however, that the GOAM's mission in New York would take
all opinions into account over the next few days.
