SUBJECT: BOLIVIA: NOT TERRIBLY HELPFUL ON THE NAM

REF: SECSTATE 145242

(SBU) Poloff delivered reftel demarche to First Secretary
Eduardo Gallardo of the Office of Multilateral Relations in
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs September 20. Gallardo noted
our concerns, especially regarding our desire for the GOB to
speak with the Guatemalan delegation about its UN Security
Council candidacy. Gallardo expressed GOB solidarity with
the U.S. position that lethal attacks which target civilians
to intimidate a population or compel government action cannot
be excused or justified, but said the GOB would have a
difficult time at the NAM building consensus on that issue.
Gallardo said the GOB would consider our request for more
balanced language on Israel, but again noted that consensus
would be difficult on such a "complex" topic.
