1. Poloff discussed reftel talking points with MFA
International Organizations Deputy Director Ghanim Al
Mazroai on July 19. Al Mazroai said he would relay the
U.S. position to the UAE/UN PermRep in New York. The UAE
PermRep is consulting with decisionmakers in Abu Dhabi and
UN representatives from other Arab nations, and they will
likely vote as a bloc. The Arab group will decide how they
will vote the evening of July 19, he said.

2. Poloff stressed the political and redundant nature of
the resolution, and requested a NO vote from the UAE, along
with UAE encouragement of NO votes from other Arab
countries. Al Mazroai said he would relay this to
decisionmakers in Abu Dhabi and in New York.

3. Post recommends that USUN coordinate with the UAE/UN
PermRep in New York as soon as possible to influence the
voting decision of this bloc.
