(SBU) Poloff delivered reftel demarche November 17 to Pieter
van der Vliet, Head of the MFA's UN and IFIs Political and
Legal Affairs Division. Van der Vliet said that initial
Dutch opposition to the resolution has weakened in the face
of an evolving EU majority that looks set to support the
resolution. Van der Vliet said at this point, the Dutch are
likely to abstain. However, he noted, the GONL is still
seeking textual revisions that would allow it to join the EU
majority in favor.
