E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PREL UNGA IS MK
SUBJECT: MACEDONIA LIKELY TO FOLLOW EU POSITION ON UNGA
ANTI-ISRAEL BODIES

REF: STATE 178061

(SBU) PolOff delivered reftel points on opposing UNGA
anti-Israel bodies to MFA Head of Sector for Multilateral
Relations Goran Stevcevski on October 25. Stevcevski said
the GOM will consider the U.S. position, but made it clear
that Macedonia likely would follow the joint EU position on
the matter. (NOTE: The GOM generally supports USG positions
at the UNGA. As an EU candidate country, however, Macedonia
usually feels "bound" to follow the joint EU position, if it
exists, on an UNGA resolution, even if the USG opposes it.
If there is no EU consensus, Macedonia generally will abstain
or support the USG position. END NOTE.)
