RESOLUTIONS

REF: STATE 204646

(SBU) Poloff discussed reftel demarche November 8 with French
MFA IO Human Rights desk officer Donatienne Hissard. On
Sudan, Hissard expressed regret to hear that the EU-draft
language calling for a moratorium on the death penalty would
preclude U.S. co-sponsoring and lobbying assistance. On
Burma, Hissard reacted with genuine surprise that the EU
draft's inclusion of language provided by the regime in
Rangoon had rendered U.S. co-sponsorship problematic. She
argued the Burma resolution was customarily adopted by
consensus, hence the consultation with Burmese officials.
She anticipated that there would be an EU response to the
U.S. points.
