1, Embassy on November 24 delivered reftel demarche to MFA UN
affairs director Michelle Cohen, emphasizing the importance
of the upcoming votes in the UNGA to promote more equitable
treatment of Israel in the UN and to advance the cause of UN
reform. Political officer also highlighted the urgency of
getting instructions to the Dominican UN mission in New York.
We asked that the Dominican Republic consider voting "no" to
the proposed extension of the mandate of three outmoded UN
bodies dealing with Israeli-Palestinian issues. Cohen had no
immediate reaction, but will study our points -- which we
delivered as a non-paper -- and engage MFA decisionmakers.
