SUBJECT: ESTONIA TO SUPPORT COMMON EU POSITION ON CUBA EMBARGO

REF: 148506

1. (SBU) On October 26, Polecoff spoke with Urmas Eigla, Cuban Desk

Officer at the MFA. Eigla stated that the Government of Estonia
(GOE)
will give careful consideration to the UNGA Resolution, but will
ultimately support the common EU position. The GOE feels that
strong
and inflexible sanctions and isolationist policies will not
necessarily
promote the development of civil society in Cuba. Eigla also
commented
that even though Estonia does not have representation in Cuba, the
GOE
strongly supports communication with dissidents and providing them
with
support and assistance.
