On 8 November poloff delivered talking points (reftels) to
Minister of Foreign Affairs Americas Desk Officer Augustin
Rutikara. Rutikara said the USG positions on the UNGA third
comittee (refs A and B) would be considered but he had no
immediate comment. On the USG objection to the Cuba Embargo
Resolution (ref D), Rutikara said the GOR holds the view that
embargos hurt populations not leaders and are generally not
effective. He did not seem persuaded by the talking points
and did not know if Rwanda would support the Autralian
amendment (ref C) but promised to quickly dissiminate the
demarches to the Ministry's decision makers.
