SUBJECT: MDA DEMARCHE ON ADDITIONAL GENEVA PROTOCOL
REF: SECSTATE 206954
1. (SBU) Post delivered reftel demarche on November 17 to
Chief of Multilateral Affairs Carlos Cordero. In a follow-up
conversation on November 22, Cordero advised Poloff that he
would likely be attending the conference in Geneva to discuss
the adoption of a third protocol. Cordero made clear that
the GOCR is strongly in favor of adopting the third protocol
under a religion-neutral symbol, such as the Red Crystal.
Cordero has communicated the GOCR's position to its mission
in Geneva, but hopes to represent the GOCR in person for the
debate, scheduled for the first week of December.
