2. (SBU) U/S Mutriff responded that UN country resolutions should be
objective and not subject to retaliatory measures. He stated that
they should be debated openly and voted upon, with the UN's response
to human rights issues "upgraded." Mutriff also said that he would
pass the demarche on to the Department for International
Organizations for further review.

3. (U) Post will follow-up with the MFA to determine if specific
positions have developed on the individual country resolutions.
