On November 23 economic/political section chief delivered
reftel demarche to Antonio Macateve, Chief of the
Multilateral Affairs Department, Directorate of International
Organizations and Conferences, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Macateve replied to the demarche by saying that, despite the
GRM's support for the African Union peacekeeping effort in
Darfur, his government usually did not find it useful to
"point the finger" at an African government over human rights
violations. His government usually abstained from voting on
such human rights violations. He implied that the GRM would
abstain on the upcoming EU resolution on Sudan.
