1. (SBU) PolOff faxed RefTel points on September 15 and
followed up with a telephone call on September 19 to MFA
Director for Multilateral Affairs, Miguel Mendez, requesting
that the GOE consider referring Iran to the UN Security
Council. PolOff mentioned that the Secretary had raised this
issue with President Palacio at their recent meeting in New
York (ref B). Mendez said he understood USG concerns over
Iran's actions, but added that the GOE still has not taken a
position on the UNSC referral. However, Mendez again
stressed that the GOE supports full, transparent dialogue on
Iran, adding that they will only consider UNSC referral when
all other diplomatic means are exhausted.
