Per reftels, Charge d'Affaires met with MFA Supervising
Director for Legal and Multilateral Affairs, Mrs. Nana Bema
Kumi, on December 17 to discuss the U.N. human rights
resolutions on Iran and Turkmenistan. Charge said that
although the resolutions had passed in the U.N. Third
Committee in November, the USG is concerned about possible
no-action motions from Iran and Turkmenistan. He urged the
GoG to vote against any no-action motions. Although Mrs. Kumi
expressed concern over the late notice in communicating this
to her colleagues, she assured the Charge that she would
share this message immediately with the Minister of Foreign
Affairs and others who work on these matters. She said that
it could also be useful to communicate this message with
Ambassador Poku in Washington.
