1. (SBU) On November 8, DCM raised points in Ref A to
Argentine Under Secretary for Foreign Policy Luis Cappagli.
Cappagli stated that the GOA would vote for the resolution
condemning the U.S. embargo on Cuba, but noted that the GOA
had not decided on whether it will support the Australian
amendment expressing concern about Cuba's human rights
situation. Cappagli noted that Argentina remains concerned
over Cuba's human rights situation, but is concerned that
supporting the Australian amendment would dilute the
resolution condemning the U.S. embargo. (NOTE: The GOA
abstained on the Cuba human rights resolutions in 2004 and
2005.)
