SUBJECT: SLOVAKIA WILL SUPPORT UK-FRENCH DRAFT RESOLUTION
ON IRAN

REF: 197807

1. Slovakia will likely support the UK-French draft UNSCR on
Iran, according to Ambassador Vladimir Lomen of the UNSC
Coordination Unit at MFA. Lomen told Poloff the UK had
lobbied the GoS hard for support and that the matter was
being considered in the FM's office as of the morning of
December 12. Poloff witnessed a French diplomat lobbying FM
Kubis on the issue as well. GoS officials told the UK that
Slovakia will advocate a common EU position in support of the
draft UNSCR, and that Slovakia would even consider
co-sponsoring the draft if the U.S. supports it.

2. Lomen suggested that the U.S. lobby hard for Russian
support for the draft UNSCR, but expressed doubt that the
Russians would accept the draft unless it is significantly
watered down.
