REF: SECSTATE 104272

1. (SBU) Pol-Miloff delivered reftel demarche to MFA Legal
Department staffer Ondina Blokar on 15 June. Blokar said
that an interministerial working group on international human
rights law issues had been requested to issue an opinion on
the Swiss Circular Note and the Third Additional Protocol.
While the opinion has not yet been issued, Blokar said the
GoS would likely have "no problem" with the proposal. She
referred to a May 2005 EU committee meeting in Brussels at
which EU member states discussed "doing something similar"
with respect to the Swiss Circular Note, i.e. asking other
countries for the broadest possible support. Blokar stressed
that Slovenia has been a strong supporter of the ICRC and
would continue to support international humanitarian causes
in the future.
